A Burundi Coffee Born of Collaboration

 

This delicious Burundi coffee began as a collaboration with fellow coffee roasters, Kickapoo Coffee; this crop of coffee from Burundi comes with more than just unique flavor notes, but also with a sourcing story that in one-of-a-kind. The really interesting thing about this coffee is that we are, through added premium per green pound, buying goats. Goats!

In an effort to get more money back to the farmers, Kickapoo worked with Greenco (the exporter for this coffee) on a solution. Greenco approached their longtime non-profit partner, the Kahawatu Foundation, to find a way that our extra funds could benefit local coffee farmers. Their solution was the purchase of 42 goats, which have been distributed among four farming village associations in the Nemba region.

Burundi is a landlocked country in Africa, bordering the D.R. Congo, Rwanda, and Tanzania. It is a nation that has been plagued with genocide and political corruption. In a country that faces so many challenges, Greenco is a coffee exporter that focuses on the sustainability, and ethical practices of the coffee supply chain. We are thrilled to have the chance to be a part of that supply chain with the producers of this wonderful coffee.

The goats will help farmers diversify their income during the season between coffee harvest; and since goats reproduce so quickly, Greenco estimates that every member of the four village associations (109 farmers) will have their own goat within a year. This means access to new revenue outside of coffee and additional financial stability for the farming families who have produced this great coffee!
