Yego Coffee is a family owned company based in Somerville, Massachusetts by Fatuma and her husband Francois Tuyishime. The word YEGO is from Kinyarwanda and it means YES. This word in Rwanda is a symbol of positivity and affirmation.  Coffee business has been part of Tuyishime's family for over four decades. As a boy he grew up seeing his father in coffee farms working alongside the farmers providing a sustainable income for his family. He instilled this same drive into his son to not only use coffee for income, but also as a tool to build and support communities.
