Matriarch Coffee of Rwanda

Rwandan coffee has always been one of my favorites for its rich complexities of flavor and it’s citric acidity, but Rwandan coffee production is shadowed by a tragic past.

In 1994 over a period of 100 days, nearly a million people were killed and an estimated half a million women were raped and left to fend for themselves. Many of the deaths were men, and this left the country bereft of men to help rebuild it. So, the women stepped in, and companies like Matriarch were born.

To get an idea of the heartbreak and tragedy during that time, check out the movie Hotel Rwanda.
