In 20219, Angele Ciza, the co-founder of Kahawa Link Company (Kalico), was interviewed by Susan Heller Evenson of Atlas Coffee Importers. We invite you to enjoy Angele’s own words about why the Burundi Kalico Mama is such a special coffee:

“Kalico Mama is the name of a new brand of coffee that we produce in partnership with ATLAS and is a women-produced coffee. This coffee comes from female farmers (widows, single mothers and other women). We operate this coffee separately to other coffees delivered to the washing station. The concept behind the new brand is to promote women in the coffee industry, starting from empowering women producers as well as disabled women. We have made a special bag design to make the coffee unique and more visible. A local sewing group of disabled women sew the special bag art, and out of the profit margin we get from the coffee we will redistribute in a social corporate responsibility way or add extra money on the cherries delivered. We will work with the producers and women on a project that will be beneficial.”
