Bekske specialty coffee - Empowering women in Rwanda

Transparant

Bèkske koffie is er voor iedereen die op een heel toegankelijke manier verantwoorde keuzes wil maken en wil bijdragen aan een betere wereld. Om iedereen die wil bijdragen aan het realiseren van onze missie te helpen, vinden we het niet meer dan normaal om inzicht te geven in het proces en de kosten die gemoeid zijn met het maken van een kopje koffie van koffiebes tot kopje koffie. Daarom vertellen we zo transparant mogelijk over onze acties en keuzes op onze koffieverpakkingen, website en ons Bèkske Social Impact Model.

Open communication

Logically, we expect the same openness from our suppliers, partners and customers. If there is room for improvement, we are open to any suggestion. With transparency across the board – financially, logistically and in terms of impact – we continue to challenge ourselves to critically examine the necessity of each step. At all times, our goal remains: the greatest possible positive impact locally, especially for women coffee entrepreneurs. Through this transparent, what we consider to be the most honest way of communicating, we are trying to set a new standard by which we can make a real impact on the local economy, the environment, our women of course, but also on the coffee drinker.

10 components

When assessed against the reality, the price is currently made up of 10 components. Of these, 39% already effectively benefits the Rwandan production chain. In concrete terms, for our 75 women, this means that they receive an extra €1.00 per kilo (on top of the nationally determined $0.26 per kilo). On top of that, another 25% of the profit goes to them, because they share in the profit. Finally, they are directly empowered through, among other things, the training they receive from our partner organization Solace Ministries on the sustainable and responsible cultivation of the coffee trees. For this, Het Bèkske has reserved €1.80 per kilo. These elements are separate from all the other women who benefit from the sale of the Bèkske in other parts of the production process (including at the washing station where we also buy the coffee).

Just taste them

Taste them all and discover your favorite brewing. No matter which roast you taste, they all come from the same arabica bean. Rwanda, country of origin, the height of the plantations, the way the cherries are picked, the climate and the harvesting season all influence the exquisite taste.
