The Kayanza province is in the northern part of Burundi, close to the border of Rwanda, located at an altitude of more than 1800m. Kayanza has the reputation of being one of the best coffee producing regions in Burundi. It is also known for being the water source of the Nile River. We have 8 washing stations in Kayanza that produce our high quality specialty coffee. All the farmers we collect cherries from in Kayanza are registered with our washing stations. Each registered farmer is organised into a group of 30 which is headed by a lead farmer, who acts as a spokesperson to facilitate communication and organisation with the washing station. Due to Kayanza's high altitude, the coffee that is grown here has a high level of acidity that is mixed with a fruity-sweetness. It has good body together with a long and very sweet aftertaste. Generally, this coffee has tropical fruit characteristics (such as lemon, cherry and orange) and slightly sweet chocolate flavours.
