This is a fully washed coffee from 400 smallholder farmers in the village of Masenga, Mutambu county, in the region of Mumirwa, eastern Burundi.

THE PRODUCERS
This lot is made up of coffee from 400 smallholder farmers in Masenga village. These farmers typically cultivate an average of 30 coffee trees of the Bourbon variety. Farms range between 1700 and 1800 masl in altitude and farmers deliver their ripe cherries to the central Migoti washing station for processing.
One of the Masenga farmers, Daniel, enjoys sharing information about how to grow coffee with his neighbors (about 800 of them!) He’s a third generation coffee farmer who’s been producing coffee for 30 years along with his wife, Cevronie, and six children. He’s looking forward to increased prices for coffee so he can continue to share his blessings with his relatives and community.

Migoti Coffee has a vision to economically transform the Mutambu community, and quality coffee production is just one of the entrepreneurial projects planned. They have built a spring-fed water supply for the community, piping water from miles away in the highest mountains of Burundi to the community and to their central washing station. They are also actively developing a small hydropower plant to provide low-cost renewable energy to the local community and to the washing station.
