"Kinini" translates to “this big thing right here.” It’s an apt name for this stellar coffee cooperative from Rwanda, which aims to produce superior quality coffee as a means of providing community development and financial independence for member farmers (85% of whom are women).
Kinini is also the name of a washing station and cooperative located in Kinini town, which collects from the neighboring villages of Tumba and Mageragere.
