GIVEAWAY: Grace Hightower De Niro & Coffee of Rwanda Gift Set

In case you didn’t know, today is National Coffee Day!

Although I’m not a ‘cup of joe’ drinker, Grace Hightower De Niro is making me reconsider. Wife of the legendary actor, Robert De Niro, Grace is the woman behind the newly launched Grace Hightower De Niro & Coffee of Rwanda.

Inspired by the spirit of Rwandans, De Niro decided to create this line of fair trade coffees to celebrate, support and give back to the coffee farmers and citizens of the African country. Through direct sourcing, ethical practices and environmental stewardship, her commitment to the betterment of the hardworking farmers and their surrounding communities allows them to create a sustainable business that can be passed from one generation to the next.

Through Grace’s dedication, she helps make it possible for their products to be enjoyed and shared with people from all over the world. Available in four unique blends ranging from citrusy medium light roasts to deep espresso roasts, Coffees of Rwanda will surely satisfy the cravings of any coffee consumer!


Grace Hightower & Coffees of Rwanda available here and at specialty stores including Whole Foods, $12.50 each

As a celebration of her journey to Rwanda, check out this video titled, “LOVE!”

  1. My favorite coffee flavor is hazelnut.

  2. I love coffee! My fave flavor would be an espresso roast! If I fulfilled my dream of having a cafe, I might sell these there! ; ) The packaging is cute too.

  3. I LOVE medium light roaat, it’s just right for my tastebuds. Not overpowering, but just enough to get me going in the morning. Great job Grace Hightower, keep up the good work, and keep making great coffee.
