Fairtrade Rwanda coffee plantations


Whilst I was out in Rwanda working on a series for the BBC about the mountain gorillas i had some time to drive up to Abakundakawa and shoot stills for the rwanda foundation. The foundation  works with a fairtrade coffee cooperative helping support the cooperative and the local community. The Rwanda foundation was set up in memory of a beautiful man, David Williamson, who was passionately involved with great coffee and fairtrade in his lifetime. The beans are of really high quality, washed and hand selected before roasting. I got to see the whole amazing process, meet some of the cooperative growers and really appreciate what makes a good cup of coffee and a fair income for the people growing it. You can go to their website to find out more about their brilliant work , about David, and see the rest of the stills.
