Spyhouse is proud to be offering this coffee as a yearly staple in our Gender Equity Project. Produced on 16 distinct lots by thousands of farmers, almost 40% are women owned. Many of them have been widowed due to the conflicts that have destabilized the province of South Kivu (where this coffee originates). For these women, gender justice and equality are essential. They have worked with organizations such as OXFAM (an organization that provides aid for impoverished and war-torn regions across the globe) to enact Gender Action Learning Systems. This work has had an immensely positive impact and enhanced the lives of many women in the region and a great many women coffee producers.

Coffee Bio

A repeat and multifaceted offering for Spyhouse, this coffee is also used in our Moonstruck and Bold and Beautiful blends. It is a versatile coffee that can take on a completely different character when roasted to darker levels, featuring dark chocolate and toffee notes, a heavy body, and a light spice character. As a single origin, we wanted to highlight the brighter, more delicate side of this coffee and let its natural vibrancy take center stage. You’ll notice a crisp acidity with a mild fruitiness paired with caramel. We hope you enjoy this unique and impactful coffee as much as we do!
