Selectively harvested by hand & delivered from smallholders living around Kayanza, Burundi to the Kibingo washing station; this coffee is a collective, community effort. The Kibingo washing station serves 3,515 registered small-scale growers, spread over 18 hills in the local region. Most producers have only a small plot with 250 trees on average meaning they are able to sell 200-300kg annually, making the communal washing station vital to their success.

At the washing station, growers can collect organic fertiliser from composted coffee pulp, promoting a sustainable farming techniques. Farmers can also obtain low-cost, subsidised coffee seedlings from the growing station’s dedicated nursery.
