Coffee from Burundi
About the coffee
Burundi is a small country in East Africa. Crossed by a plateau, it offers ideal growing conditions for Arabica coffee. Fertile and mineral-rich volcanic rock soils and tropical humid climate are perfect conditions for the slow and gentle ripening of the coffee cherries. This coffee is a washed coffee that has been dried on raised beds for 20-25 days.
The Red Bourbon variety has a light body with tart fruity notes of Ceylon tea, green apple and red currant.
About the farm
The Izuba Wash Station is located near a river near Kayanza Province in Burundi, which provides an important source of fresh water for coffee processing. Where possible, the station provides premiums not only to the farmers but also to the staff. After the coffee is processed, the coffee residue is turned into a natural fertilizer and distributed to local farmers to add nutrients to their soils. The Izuba washing station buys the cherries from small farmers in the region and processes them into washed, honey, and natural coffees.
Through the processing stations, farmers are guaranteed prices and the value of the coffee is guaranteed through careful quality control. This ensures the highest quality coffee for the consumer and the greatest profitability for the farmers.
