May 27 and 28, 2015
We visited two organic washing stations, Abakundekawa on May 27 and Kigufi on May 28. For both, I happened to have a personal connection to the consumer end of the supply chain -- Zingerman's Coffee Co. (in Ann Arbor, MI) is a customer of Abakundekawa and on May 29, in Kigali, we visited the restaurant and cafe run by Kigufi's owner, Jean Pierre Savageni. There I was able to taste freshly roasted Kigufi organic, single-estate coffee. Fantastic!
