$4 of the purchase of every retail bag of this coffee will go directly to help build a washing station in Burundi. Much like Minnesota, Burundi is in the “Great Lakes” region [of Africa] and is a landlocked country. Climate-wise, they are very different. Ha. Anyway... Mpemba is a farmer run cooperative part of the newly formed Burundi Coffee Growers Union. The Union has 11 co-o
ps in it's organization. The coop members are meticulous about ripe cherry selection, and the management and organization of their washing station is solid, the president of the coop,Germain Simbayobewe, is the former station manager from Sogestal Bwayi. We've offered coffee from Burundi every year since we started, and we’re excited about the progress of quality of Burundi coffee over the past few years. This coffee was sourced for us by Ben Carlson of the Long Miles Coffee Project in Burundi. Long Miles Coffee Project exists to bring hope to local coffee farmers. Hope for a better education. Hope for a stronger community. Hope for the future. And it all starts with a little red berry from a coffee tree. In support of the project, $4 of the purchase of every retail bag of this coffee will go directly to help build a washing station in Burundi. Why is a washing station important?The washing station’s main purpose is to remove the coffee seed from the skin and fruit and dry out the seed to prepare it for hulling and export. For great tasting coffee the washing station has to do much more. Without a well run washing station within a few hours walk farmers can expect a barely livable wage with little to no chance of premiums. Too long a distance or poorly operated and marketed stations destroy any hope of long-term relationships with buyers. Direct trade relationships with roasters and western importers are the key to help create a stable and sustainable source of income for the 2,000+ smallholder farmers surrounding each station. Thank you for supporting Burundi farmers one cup at a time. Follow the project @longmilescoffee or longmilescoffeeproject.com.
