We met Dan in November 2015 while we went to do some training to Kigali, Rwanda for a project lead by Sustainable Harvest. Dan is the barista at Question Café in Kigali. Everyday he brews coffee, pulls espresso shots, makes artful drinks, and shares the stories of the hundreds of women farmers whose coffee he has the privilege to serve. Question Café offers coffee from Nyampinga and Twongere Umusaruro cooperatives, part of the Relationship Coffee Institute’s initiative to promote specialty coffee and women’s empowerment. Dan puts the final touch on a long process and highlights the extraordinary qualities of this delicious coffee produced with strength and passion.
Dan would love to attend Let’s Talk Coffee and learn from some of the best baristas in the industry. He is excited to share the story of Rwanda and the cooperatives he works with.
Help us reach our goal to raise $5,000 usd to take Dan to Let's Talk coffee happening in Mexico this year, and then bringing him on tour to our Equator cafes in the Bay Area. It will be an experience Dan will cherish, and take back with him to share his new skills and knowledge with his community in Rwanda.
