About this Coffee
Worn decoratively in women’s hair and in jewellery in Rwanda, “Agasaro” translates to “beads” from Kinyarwanda and is the name of the women-grown coffee at the Cocagi co-operative.
Floral and aromatic, Agasaro is reminiscent of a light hibiscus tea in notes and mouthfeel, complemented by fresh and vibrant citrus acidity and notes of blood orange and lychee.
Co-operative des Caféicultureurs de Gishoma (Cocagi) is made up of 1000 smallholder coffee members, approximately 300 of whom are women. In 2015, a women’s group was set up to promote women economically, in decision making and increase visibility by creating Agasaro coffee, the brand known by exporters.
