Working with the Hunter Foundation Good Cup Coffee Company’s commitment to Rwandan coffee farmers provides a boost in local incomes following the inauguration of a coffee roasting and packaging factory in Gikondo, Kigali. The factory is owned by the Rwandan Farmers Coffee Company, therefore all profit remains in the local area.
THE HUNTER FOUNDATION
BEYOND FAIRTRADE COFFEE
“There are three things about Good Cup Coffee Company that are key to our ethos of beyond ‘fairtrade’ ethical coffee. Quality, ethics and taste. Right from the start we wanted our coffee to taste great not just as an espresso but also in cappuccinos, lattes, macchiatos etc. and our blends truly reflect our desire. From plantation to cup we are focused on providing some of the most ethical coffees available. Our Bourbon Arabica blend is one of the most ethically-sourced coffees in the world. Every penny remains with the Rwandan farmers, there is no middle man, we pay direct to the farmers”.
Lily Gallacher, Operations Manager for Good Cup Coffee Company

Our Rainforest Espresso bean is now Rainforest Alliance Certified, a step up from Fairtrade, we pay more for our beans which means the growers and their local economy benefit from trading with us.
