This special lot of Koakaka was produced by the Koakaka Cooperative. The Koakaka Cooperative represents coffee farmers from three sectors (Kinyamakara, Karama, and Ruhondo) all of whom are located in Nyamagabe district in the Southern Province of Rwanda. The cooperative owns two washing stations, Karambi and Muganza.
