Tigermoth’s House Blend is made up of three different coffees from Rwanda, Timor-Leste, and Colombia. All three are sourced through Raw Material, a social enterprise that gives 100 per cent of profits back to farmers through payments for coffee and investments in the community. Raw Material works with farmers to improve the quality and consistency of their coffee, and connects them with speciality roasters who make a long-term commitment to buying from the region, yielding a higher and more stable price.

Rwanda, Nyamasheke

The Gito coffees come from three beautiful areas across Nyamasheke district where the volcanic, nutrient-packed soils, abundance of rainfall and sunshine, and the elevation, lends itself to the production  of exceptional washed coffees. In Rwanda, Raw Material works alongside Muraho Trading Company, started by two brothers with a passion for showcasing the country’s speciality coffee. This partnership helps co-operatives increase the quality of their production, fetch a higher price for their coffee, and also introduces them to new markets. 

Timor-Leste, Moto Bandeira 

Timor-Leste is facing huge economic upheaval as its oil reserves begin to run dry. Coffee is already the second-highest earner for the country after oil, with 37 per cent of households dependent on coffee for income, and it’s set to become an even more crucial export. This coffee comes from Ermera, a municipality where 60 per cent of the population live below the poverty line despite having the greatest coffee production volumes in the country. Both productivity and profitability are low, largely because almost all coffee is sold for a discounted and fluctuating price.

Raw Material is working with producers and farmers to address the challenges that stand in the way of selling in the speciality coffee market (which yields a higher and more stable price), and connects them with roasters who make a long-term commitment to buy coffee from the region. The Moto Bandeira coffee is named after a popular waterfall in the region, and is grown under the shade of wild forests, free from fertilisers and chemicals.

Colombia, El Aguila

The Colombian coffee comes from El Aguila, a coffee association of 93 producers, spread across a stretch of mountains in the Tatama National Park. In 2019, across all of Raw Material’s projects in Colombia, coffee producers received on average more than five times as much profit by selling through Raw Material than they would have done through traditional channels. Raw Material is also working with producers to help promote opportunities for women to gain higher-income roles within the sector, and is encouraging environmentally sustainable farming practices.
