Burundi speciality Coffee sourced from the treasure of the African Great Rift Valley. An origin with an incongruous mix of soaring mountains, languid lakeside communities and a tragic past blighted by ethnic conflict.
We offer a range of washed and natural speciality Arabica coffee from this extraordinary origin.

Working with processing partners directly supporting Burundi families
Working in partnership with Migoti Coffee Company based in Burundi we are souring from partner washing stations who purchase cherries directly from farmers high in the mountains overlooking Lake Tanganyika.
A special focus is paid to supporting farmers with a long term view. Investing in new crops for the coffee farmers to intercrop with their coffee trees, embarking on ambitious hydropower projects and education to improve quality and quantity in order to build a brighter future for their families and the next generation of Burundi coffee farmers.

He was taught to farm by his Father, starting at 27 years old and sharing duties with his wife. Together they have 350 coffee trees and every year sell their harvest to Migoti Coffee, which gives them enough income to look after their family and farm.
