The farmers who bring us this lot took up coffee in 2001 as a way to strengthen their community.
Why we love this coffee
Mindful of the fact that coffee cultivation requires collaboration and trust, they saw it as a catalyst for reconciliation and rebuilding. Working with farmers in one of Rwanda’s poorest areas, the Maraba co-op now delivers exceptional coffees like this one.
But this coffee community does so much more. Their harmonious approach is exemplary—farmers and workers value accountability above all else, and it’s working: since Maraba’s inception over 200 active wet mills have opened, building undeniable momentum for a coffee we are proud to offer for a second year.
About Starbucks Reserve® coffee
Our constant travels around the world take us in search of small-lot coffees that are distinctive enough to earn our Starbucks Reserve® label. Each coffee is one-of-a-kind—sourced from small coffee-growing regions in Latin America, Africa and Asia / Pacific Islands.
All Starbucks Reserve® coffees are roasted with care, at our Starbucks Reserve® Roastery and Tasting Room in Seattle, to bring out their peak flavour expression. They are available in limited supply in select Starbucks® stores or delivered to you.
