From 2018 onward we have sourced all of our Burundian and Rwandan coffees from our importer partners at Sucafina. Although Sucafina is one of the largest buyers of specialty coffee in East Africa, they are still a family run business that has made huge investments in sustainability. They founded a non-profit called The Kahawatu Foundation to manage these sustainability efforts: from savings and micro-loan programs, to women led co-ops, soil analysis and organic manure production, to gender and youth workshops. The infrastructure for seedling production and processing are modern and well cared for and farmers’ lots are fully traceable through a proprietary software.

This particular lot comes around 1740 farmers in the famed Kayanza growing region where Burundi’s highest cupping coffees are found. It is sweet, syrupy, and complex with soda-like citrus up front, stone fruit as it cools, and a subtle herbaceous note throughout.
