About the coffee

In this country, where 55% of the Burundian working population lives on coffee production and where 95% of the industry is managed by just 2 players, we decided to opt for a different sourcing method.
We have chosen to work with Salum, who is the only independent producer in the country.
An entrepreneur, coffee enthusiast, and manager of a well-oiled transport company, he owns his own farm and 4 washing stations. His high-quality work has confirmed that we made the right choice.

Our Kiboko comes from the Kayanza region and it is now 100% traceable, because this year Salum began producing it at his Shembati washing station. This means we get a higher quality coffee at the same price as well as more even roasting. A wonderful way of supporting an independent producer!

 

THE TERROIR OF KAYANZA


The Kayanza region, in northern Burundi, borders Rwanda. It is a mountainous area that often reaches an altitude of 2,000 metres. Known also for its tea production, it is here that our partner Salum owns a farm and four washing stations.
