Not only was this coffee produced by young growers, it was also selected by the world's youngest Q grader, Frankie Volkema. Produced by a collective of seven young women entrepreneurs from the Ngozi region of Burundi, this coffee shines. The women from Ngozi pooled their savings to produce their first harvest and purchase a wet mill. They named their investment group Turihamwe, which means "together" in Kirundi. While these women have been in coffee farming for years, this is the group's FIRST EVER harvest. It's incredible.
