Within Eastern Africa lies “the country of a
thousand hills,” Rwanda, which received this
name because most of the land is mountainous. Coffee
production began in 1904 and has developed as the main
source of income for farmers. Today, approximately
400,000 coffee producers operate small farms. The
COOPAC cooperative began in 2001 and is located on
the mountain slopes in western Rwanda, above Lake
Kivu. The cooperative started out with 110 members
and has grown to 2,200 members from six areas within
the country. The cooperative has three environmentally
friendly washing stations that filter off waste by-products
from coffee processing for use as fertilizer instead of
emptying this waste into three nearby rivers and lakes.
