The Nziza Collective is made up of 200 women who are the sole supporters of their households and are producing some of the best coffee in the region. This is a microlot from the Kivu Lake fam, and each bean is hand-sorted to deliver and showcase only the best quality coffee. The area around Kivu Lake Farm benefits from consistent rainfall, high altitude and even temperatures throughout the year. The growers at the collective have used this to their advantage, carefully and skilfully cultivating the area.
In partnership with First Crop Coffee, Wide Open Road work directly with Land of A Thousand Hills and their coffee farming villages to provide a living wage, education, healthcare and clean water to the community, while re-investing into the collective's specialty coffee knowledge and practice. Using the funds provided from the sale of their coffee, First Crop recently helped to setup a sewing collective, providing machines, training and resources to provide a source of income to the villages during the off season.

WIDE OPEN ROAD is more than a song title, it’s a mood, a state of mind, it conjures a narrative and story of how the Brunswick based roastery want to travel through the world. To this day that narrative drives their decisions, it directs them as they navigate all the changes, the hardships and the joys that come with building something that you care about, something you hope other like minded souls will get on board with and add their creative energy to, a community of people who love to see things transformed and help to grow what is essentially an intangible idea, a Wide Open Road.
