The MIMA cooperative was founded in 2018 and is run entirely by 30 women in the Avaratriniavo region of Itasy, Madagascar. It is led by a lady called Raozilala, who was the leader of a women's association beforehand. When she heard about an opportunity to grow and sell coffee, she convinced the other women in the association to become involved in the coffee project, and that's how MIMA cooperative was born.
The MIMA cooperative produces a Red Bourbon Arabica coffee which is grown in the shade of banana and avocado, sun dried in raised beds and processed naturally. The coffee trees flower in July and coffee is harvested in May/June of each year.
Tasting Notes: classic Bourbon bean -- lovely balance and body, with citrus and caramel overtones.
