Curator's Notes

A supernova of bright, fruit-forward notes radiate from this stellar natural process. As the brightness recedes, you'll find a core of smooth milk chocolate rounding out the finish. A true star from a woman-owned and operated cooperative.

Roaster's Notes

Nova is back! This women-owned and exported coffee is made of fruity, sweet and dry-processed beans. The Nova has fresh strawberry notes on the nose creamy taste of vanilla-like brown spice and fresh strawberry with a sweet lasting caramel finish. Brew as a pour-over or espresso for the Nova to come alive. With last year being such a success, this year is so exciting because we are bringing back one of our more fruity and sweet coffees. Agnes Mukamushinja started Nova Washing Station in 2015 with her husband, Managing Director Felix Hitayezu. Together they used their 25 years of coffee experience to establish a washing station that focuses on Rwandan women coffee growers. Nova Coffee now engages with over 2,8000 local smallholders. They completed a curriculum and implemented practices that help organizations they work with to be ethically and socially responsible. Nova Coffee is committed to coffee education, gender equality, and the health of their community. Last year, Nova was the first coffee we purchased directly from an Africa-based and owned business founded and co-owned by a woman, Laetitia Mukandahiro. Laetitia entered the world of coffee as a cherry picker. She seized a training opportunity offered by the PEARL project that aimed to elevate the coffee quality in Rwanda in the early 2000s. Having been introduced to quality control and coffee sensory analysis, she was hooked! Having honed their coffee growing and quality assurance skills for over 30 years combined, Laetitia and Uzziel decided to start their own coffee exporter and to do things differently. Ikawa House is eager to create a sustainable coffee community in Rwanda, and support Rwandan youth in accessing information and training to find meaningful jobs in coffee. They have an education center in Kigali where they teach and train the youth in coffee growing, sensory analysis and trade according to their own curriculum. They have also established multiple education l hubs that are located closer to the washing stations they work with. Through these hubs they provide ongoing training and seminars to improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers and the younger generation. Ikawa House is determined to increase awareness of the smallholders and the next generation of coffee people about the specialty coffee supply chain to help them elevate their own well-being and economic security. While brewing Nova you’ll get a fruity, sweet, caramelized sugar aroma. Nova has a complex flavor profile; a creamy taste of vanilla-like brown spice, fresh strawberry, with a rich caramel/dark chocolate finish.
