    Melbourne Coffee Merchants has once again brought us a great coffee from a women's collective in Rwanda. We are in love with the loyalty and dedication that goes into their work at origin. This is the third year to be working with this cooperative. This is our deepest value, to invest in each other lives, through building relationships. Coffee is beautiful yet simple way to increase the feeling of community well-being between everyone involved.

    This special micro-lot was produced by a group of women who are members of the Dukunde Kawa Cooperative. They own small farms near the Mbilima washing station, which is located in the rugged Northwest in the town of Musasa, at around 2,020 metres above sea level, making it one of Rwanda’s highest washing stations. Close to the famous Virunga (Volcanoes) National Park, this part of the world has the mineral-rich soil and lush environment that is well-suited to specialty coffee.

    Made of Many:

    Based in Stanmore in Sydney Inner West, Made of Many believes that people are the best versions of themselves when they pursue what they love. Their passion is to engage and captivate through the way they source and roast coffee.

    All of their coffees are sourced through importers they know and trust. They focus on sourcing coffees that have vivid varietal/origin characteristics. Their offerings reflect the current season of coffees from passionate producers.

    Made of Many is dedicated to the craft and is always looking for better ways to display the vivid character within a particular coffee and honour the passionate work that goes into growing it.
