Burundi Kayanza BUZIRAGUHINDWA

  • Fig. Rhubarb. Medium Acidic and Clean cup. Low Body.

The Buziraguhindwa washing station is located in the Muruta community of the Kayanza province. Before this washing station was built in 2008, the nearest washing station was 40 kilometers away. So, the farmers had to travel long distances. Now it is much easier for them to transport their coffee. The plants grow in the rich soils just below the natural Kibira forest. The water use to wash the coffee comes from a small forest river. It is filtered through sand, gravel and stones before entering a large PCV tube that leads it into the water tank. The pulping is done using a 3-disc McKinnon machine.

The variety is Bourbon and the cherries are picked at high altitudes up to 2000 meters above sea level.
