Jabulani is an organic coffee with purpose!
The Rwandan single origin coffee has been produced as a result of a partnership between Owens Coffee and Plymouth-based Jabo Butera of the Diversity Business Incubator (DBI). Behind it is a story of a vision for improving communities and developing leadership, which you can read about here.
Jabulani is grown in the Gakenke District of Rwanda. The coffee offers sweet notes of cherry, hibiscus and vanilla. We recommend it for both filter and espresso.
Coffee from Rwanda is mainly produced by smallholders who own land less than one hectare per family.
This organic single origin is produced by the Twongerekawa Coko Cooperative: a group of over 200 members who grow their coffee at unusually high levels (2000m above sea level) so the beans are slowly ripened and full of flavour.
The Coko Cooperative is a small, mostly female cooperative based in Northern Rwanda and found in the highest areas of the Gakenke District. These females are celebrated community leaders; supporting them supports their communities.
Owens and Jabo have a direct relationship with the Twongerekawa Coko Cooperative. Sales of the beans will support an initiative which connects ambassadors from the UK and Rwanda to exchange knowledge, nurture leadership and encourage positive global change.
Ideal for espresso and filter as whole beans, and ideal for cafetière and filter as medium ground. Also available as fine ground for espresso.
