We bought you this coffees last year, we thought it was amazing and now very happy to have it back.
In 2016 Migoti Coffee Company built a coffee washing station at Migoti Mountain, partnering with industry experts who provided technical expertise. Coffee trees are owned by the community, and Migoti purchase the coffee cherries directly from the farmers who harvest and deliver the cherries to our station. Over 300 tons of green coffee was produced and exported from Migoti Mountain in 2017, 2018 and 2019 coffee seasons. These harvests have received excellent cupping scores, frequently placing it as some of the best speciality coffee coming from Burundi.
The washing station is operated by a local team of ten permanent staff and over 250 temporary workers who are employed during the coffee season from March to June.
