Allpress shines spotlight on women in coffee

With International Women’s Day around the corner, iconic Kiwi coffee roastery, Allpress, is launching a limited edition, single-origin coffee to highlight projects that advance women’s rights and promote equity, while putting the spotlight on the contribution women make to coffee.

Working alongside Rwandan based Nziza Women’s Collective and coffee importer, First Crop, Allpress is roasting this high calibre coffee with artist Emma Currie designing its branding.

All profits from the sale of the coffee will be reinvested into The Collective to provide wages, education and healthcare for the Nziza women.

The Nziza Women’s Collective is a group of 200 women – all are survivors of the Rwandan genocide and are the sole income providers for their families. Through dedicated skill and cultivation, The Collective produce some of the best coffee in the region of Lake Kivu, which Allpress roast locally.

With sweet notes of white chocolate, green apple and citrus, this is delicious coffee with a conscience and is grounded in Allpress’ commitment to enriching the lives of our communities at every step of the supply chain.

“Working with the remarkable Nziza Women’s Collective has been an incredibly proud achievement for Allpress. Coffee is our platform to make meaningful change in the world and we’re always striving for ways in which we can connect coffee drinkers to the growers from bean to cup,” says Allpress New Zealand brand lead, Kristy Wilson.

“Our partnership with First Crop and The Nziza Women’s Collective allows us to make that meaningful change, whilst also creating a conversation, particularly in light of International Women’s Day. Every cup brewed using this coffee will contribute to stability for a mother and her family by providing her with opportunity and assistance. We encourage our community and all coffee lovers to get behind this wonderful cause.”

In addition, the stunning artwork on the packaging and collateral of this limited edition coffee is designed by Allpress’ very own team member, artist Emma Currie, further celebrating talented women in the industry and providing them with a platform to showcase their creativity.

Allpress’ Nziza’s Women’s Collective coffee retails for RRP $18 for 250g and $72 for 1kg and will be available to purchase from Allpress online and Allpress Roastery Cafes from 7th March until sold out.
