Burundi is a land with great coffee tradition. Its high altitude, thousands hills, volcanic soils, & abundant rains offer the ideal conditions for the production of exceptional & very exotic coffee. In Burundi there are no large plantations. Coffee is in fact grown in small family-owned farms and cherries are traditionally brought to the nearest coffee washing station.

Burundi divided its coffee system into so-called Sogestals (Sociétés de Gestion desStations de Lavage – translated: Management companies of washing stations). They are the organizing bodies behind the majority of washing stations in Burundi. The Sogestals support farmers and washing stations with financing, transport, fertilizer and international commercialization of the coffee

The region of Kayanza from which this coffee comes from, is in the north of the country, near the border with Rwanda. Kayanza is mostly known for being the water source of the Nile river. A unique water that is used to process coffee cherries at all the neighbouring wet mills.
