Our Stonecutter Coffee is a rotating highlight coffee series - a tribute to the rich history of Deer Isle's granite quarrying industry that peaked in the early 1900s. These beans are selected for their "je ne sais quoi" and often come to us from unique coffee producing regions of the world and embrace inventive processing methods. Limited amounts available, changing frequently, and now packaged in our one of a kind Stonecutter 10 oz. coffee tubes!

These tubes are a new package adventure for us. Designed and hand drawn by Deer Isle local Farrell Ruppert, they feature the slabs of granite quarried out of Stonington. Made of 100% FSC certified paper, soy ink, with gold foiled accents and a sticker of the current origin inside. For every tube made, a portion of profits are donated to One Tree Planted.

We are highlighting 2 Rwandan women cooperatives in the Gakenke district of the Northern Province. As part of Cooperative Coffees and Sustainable Growers Rwanda we are trying to build a potential relationship with these growers in Rwanda. They produce some very beautiful coffees, so we are excited to share our budding relationship with you.

Abakundakawa Rushashi "HingaKawa" is a 2,107 member team, most of whom are women and youth. Grown in volcanic soil at an altitude of 5,577-6,889 ft. above sea level, this coffee we've decided to roast to a medium/light roast and we are getting notes of sun warmed apricot with a round fig body.

Twongerekawa "Coko" is a 204 member team 83% made up of women and led by female president Therese Nyirangwabjie in the Coko sector of Gakenke. This coffee we just love light roasted, the lightest sample we pulled was our favorite, giving us tasting notes of toasted coconut key lime pie.

Help us support these amazing cooperatives and the independent women producing these great coffees. Try just one, or try both, have fun sampling coffees from the same region of the world grown by different producers.
