This is a super exciting find. Not only is this coffee delicious but there is a really cool backstory for the businesswoman behind it.

Epiphanie Mukashyaka is dynamic businesswoman and a source of inspiration to countless other female entrepreneurs in Rwanda's coffee sector and beyond. Born in 1959, Epiphanie was widowed during the 1994 genocide, which claimed over 800,000 lives in just 3 months, but chose not to leave her family's small coffee farm. Instead she set about rebuilding and developing her business and with it the local community. She started Buf Cafe in 2003, when she established Remera washing station with a loan from the Rwandan Development Bank and the assistance of the USAID-financed PEARL project.
