Grace Hightower DeNiro and Grace Hightower & Coffees of Rwanda
After Grace Hightower, Robert DeNiro's longtime love, saw Hotel Rwanda, she felt urged to create a coffee company whose profits would be given back directly to the hard-working local farmers the African country. The result is Grace Hightower & Coffees of Rwanda, a line of four coffee blends that celebrate and support the coffee farmers. Through customs like direct sourcing, fair trade, ethical practices, and environmental stewardship, the brand hopes to create a sustainable business that can be passed down through generations. The coffees are available for purchase online and in certain supermarkets, like Whole Foods.
