The Republic of Burundi is a tiny landlocked East African country, nestled between Tanzania to the East, Democratic Republic of Congo to the West and Rwanda to the north. It has been inhabited for over 500 years by two main tribal groups, and ruled as a kingdom before being colonised by Germany. Post World War I Belgium took control of the small nation before handing it independence in 1952. Coffee and Tea represent 90% of foreign exchange earnings.
This coffee is processed at the Gitwenge washing station using stream water and dry processed at the Horamama mill. This coffee is sourced through JNP Coffee, which works to educate farmers on optimal planting times, the careful harvesting of cherries and special sorting methods before wet mill processing, during and post drying under shade and/or on raised African beds, and again before packing.
