In the wake of the Rwandan Civil War, the Maraba Abahuzamugambi co-operative started as an economic and social initiative to revitalize the region. Beginning in 1994 with 300 members, the co-operative has since grown to 1,416 members. In 2001, with the help of two USAID funded projects, the co-operative began producing specialty grade coffee and has since constructed washing stations and cupping labs to improve cup quality. In 2002, Maraba achieved Fair Trade certification and is proudly the first FT single-origin coffee from Rwanda.
