World Latte Art Champion crafts new foam art for Rwanda Project

Posted by Robbie Lane on April 10, 2014 at 4:23 PM

World Latte Art Champion Hisako Yoshikawa of Ogawa Coffee in Japan recently crafted something very special for Sustainable Harvest®. Below you can see a unique piece of latte art that Hisako created specifically for our Rwanda Project.


Here is the story behind the design from Hisako herself:

Hisako Yoshikawa Small"Before I began thinking of the design, I researched Rwanda and learned about not only the courage of this country to overcome a terrifying experience, but also its courage in its current work towards a better future. My wish for this country and its people is to not commiserate so much in the past, and continue its courageous development towards a brighter future. This design is composed of the traditional handicraft of ‘agaseke’ (peace basket) and a dove that symbolizes peace. I added the coffee cherry and branch, which is also included in the Rwandan emblem, to communicate my wish for Rwanda to ‘take-off’ towards a peaceful and rich country with coffee. I am honored to be able to be able to contribute in this capacity and wish for the success of the Rwanda project."
