Ovenbird Rwanda Women Alliance Sake Farm Ground Coffee


Sake Coffee is a fully washed coffee processed in the Sake coffee washing station in the Eastern province of Rwanda, Ngoma district. Since 2013, this gorgeous and sweet coffee has been the product of the hard work of 2,400 farmers - mainly women.

Sake Farm is part of the International Women's Coffee Alliance (IWCA). IWCA Rwanda is an NGO that engages every woman in the coffee sector from crop to cup by transforming their lives and wellbeing by building strong relationships at regional and international levels. The new washing station at Sake Farm gives women in the Ngoma region more ownership within the coffee industry.

"Sake Farm is already an important source of income for people in the surrounding area, both as a market for their coffee and by providing employment. In addition, the smallholder farmers rely heavily on Sake Farm to provide information on improved agricultural practices."
- Marie Laetitia Kayitesire, Managing Director of Sake Farm
Notes: orange peel and tangy citrus overtones, with a berry jam-like mouthfeel

About Ovenbird Coffee Roasters:
Ovenbird Coffee Roasters, based in Glasgow, aim to provide artisan coffee that is accessible and approachable and want their coffee to taste great in all environments; from state-of-the-art espresso machines to simple homebrew devices. To achieve this, Ovenbird use a mix of traditional methods and progressive ideas. Davide, the founder of Ovenbird explains, "We roast without computers. We experiment with new and exciting flavour profiles. More 'bright' than 'big'. More taste than strength. More natural than instagrammable (though we are suckers for a photogenic cup). We also make some cracking whisky coffee. We test each batch by using our senses (mostly by taste) sometimes once, sometimes ten times. It has to be meticulous, of course".

The beans are ethically sourced from farms in east Africa and Central-South America, where growers who share Ovenbird's enthusiasm are selected to build long-lasting relationships.

Ovenbird began with a shared idea: to make outstanding coffee for outstanding people.
