Grace Hightower & Coffees of Rwanda {win two bags! ARV $25} When I first heard about Grace Hightower & Coffees from Rwanda, I was intrigued by the story behind the coffee. In this video Grace Hightower recalls Rwanda’s President Kagame stating that the Rwandan people needed trade, not aid. That truly stuck with her and I absolutely appreciate and agree with the “teach a man to fish” approach.

This is truly a fantastic and inspiring story! But being a coffee lover, I needed to know that the coffee was as good as it sounds. You see, coffee is a big deal in our home. The smell of fresh ground beans as the oils are released makes me smile, the sound of it percolating on the stove top stokes to anticipation of its taste, and to finally hold a cuppa {as my grandma Charlie lovingly called it} in my hands – for that moment, all is right in my world.

The Mister was especially eager to try a new coffee. Over the years he has gotten very picky about coffee! We opened the first bag, the Medium Light Roast. The look on his face after his initial smell was classic. He immediately went back for another inhalation of the lightly roasted whole beans. As he bogarted the bag, I grabbed the coffee grinder.

It was love at first sip! I normally drink my coffee black. Sometimes I will add a teaspoon of coconut oil {as you can see in the bottom left picture}. While The Mister takes his with heavy cream and a spoon of organic cane sugar.

The Mister’s Thoughts:

If I had to choose my preference of the two roasts we received it would go to the medium light roast. Hands down. It smelled stunningly amazing. I would definitely recommend it – and I will be buying it!

I was so hoping he would say that! Maybe next time he won’t hog the bag. *wink*

About Author

Erin is a hopelessly devoted wife & momma to a five year old girl and a one year old boy. For the past year she has been on a quest to get back to the basics...


  1. I am inspired by my mom. She has had many challenges in her life and yet she goes on even stronger than before. Not only that, she is always looking for ways to help others.

  2. My husband inspires me. He is the coffee drinker in the house. He is also a Leukemia survivor, this Dec. 19th he will be 1 year post stem cell transplant. It has been a challenge, but he has fought with strength and courage.

  3. My daughter inspires me. She works full time, goes to school full time, is active in her church and in the community, and has a loving, happy marriage. What more could a mom ask for? Well, besides maybe a grandbaby! 🙂

  4. My cousin who passed away this week has always inspired me. She was loved by all and fought a courage long battle cancer . She was an inspiration to so many woman
    for her outlook on live and her kindness to others

    I love dark coffee and the Espresso Roast sounds so good.
    My husband inspires me. He has such a deep rooted respectful character.

  6. My mom is my inspiration, she’s not perfect but she has always shown me and everyone love and compassion and is a great example of everything that I think a woman, mom and wife should be.

  7. Jesselyn A/Jesstinger on

    The Signature Roast sounds intriguing – but I know we would love the Expresso Roast.

    I find inspiration in many people and places but most especially 91 year old Mom who is the wisest, bravest, most loving and young-at-heart person I have ever known.

    Thank you.

  8. I’m actually inspired by my wife who grew up in poverty with 9 other siblings, short on food, short on clothing so much so they had to share, and of course short on money. However through it all Education was a high priority for her family and they all have various degrees. My wife is a Civil Engineer, my bro in law an Oceanic Ship Captain, my sister in law an Accountant, another sister in law is a Dentist, etc. They have all done well.

  9. My Dad inspired me to always try my best, and to be a fighter (in that you don’t get anything for free in life, if you want something you have to fight for it). Be strong, and don’t be afraid to fail. Unfortunately he lost his fight with cancer 6 years ago, and I miss him so much.

  10. I was inspired all my life by my paternal grandmother- she was SUCH a hard working woman and yet found time to cook, bake, and have us over quite a bit.

  11. Eileen Richter on

    All of my kids inspire me…you’d think it would be the other way around. As I have tackled disabling illness the past 12 years, they have just grown so high…jumped into new jobs and confidence to go back to school, deal with their own speed bumps with dignity and integrity. They have learned how fragile and wonderful and short life can be. And they inspire me to try to fight harder and not let myself give up.

  12. I’d really like to try the Medium Light Roast. It sounds like the perfect cup of coffee. I love the smell of coffee in the air. It can perk you up before even taking a sip.

  13. My wife has vascular dementia and inspires me to appreciate good food and good coffee. I would love to get a boost with Grace Hightower’s coffees!

  14. My parents inspired me as they raised 12 children on very little money and made us into honest hard working people.

  15. The fact my father is 76 years old, has many health problems, but yet, is SOOOO happy all the time!! He inspires me every single day!!

  16. melikegarfield on

    My grandparents inspire me in life because they have struggled through a lot of tough times but stayed strong and “in love” the whole time. It shows me what a full life can be.

  17. My girlfriend inspires me because she endures a lot of challenges and has helped us through some tough times — but has always maintained a fairness and positive attitude.
