Burundi Nyagishuru Lot 18
Altitude- 1500 - 1650m
Owner- 850 Smallholder Farmers
Harvest period- March - July.
Surrounded by around 7000 trees, Nyagishuru can be found in the Buhinyuza Commune of the Muyinga Province of Burundi. As a province, it is one of least populated and lesser-known coffee producing regions of the entire country. Interestingly, the relatively flat land here makes the perfect conditions for the production of naturally processed coffee at good volumes.
This said, Nyagishuru was able to process coffee from almost 850 families this season. These producers received a premium of 18% on top of the local market rate for their harvests, whilst the staff of the station earned almost 60% above the average labour rate.
One of the fantastic partners we work with in Burundi is Zuberi Matsitsi, owner of Matraco Coffee. One of his stations, Nyagishuru, is located in the province of Muyinga. As one of only two stations in the area that process coffee, this station is a vital resource for the region’s coffee farmers and their families.
This coffee taste great with the following brewing methods: espresso, aeropress, filter, chemex, plunger.
fruity, sherbet, creamy mouthfeel
