Our second Burundi microlot of 2019 comes from the Bwayi Washing Station, located in the province of Kayanza. There are about 4,000 producers who deliver cherry to the station, either directly or through one of 10 different nearby collection points.  On average, farmers here own less than half a hectare of land and in addition to growing coffee, they also grow crops like bananas, beans, yams, taro, and cassava, both for sale and for household use.

Due to the small size and yield on the average coffee farm or plot, washing stations are the primary point of purchase for our friends at Cafe Imports who secured this microlot for us. Since 2006, they have cupped coffees from more than 50 washing stations in an attempt to pinpoint those with the best practices, cleanest cups, and most high-quality nearby farms resulting in the coffee we have today.  We are excited that the season is finally here for Burundi coffees and hope you join us in celebrating this amazing lot! This coffee can be enjoyed many ways, as part of an espresso blend, served as a pour over or brewed on batch.
