Jean-Clement’s elegant and creamy lot is layered with rich notes of apricot and chocolate.
Jean-Clement Birabereye runs the Mpanga Kirema washing station with values and results we love. By paying higher prices for excellent coffee, he motivates farmers to practice meticulous cultivation and harvesting.
Located in the Kayanza region of Burundi, the Mpanga washing station works with 3,400 farmers who cultivate their Bourbon variety coffee between 1800 and 2000 meters above sea level on the hills surrounding the washing station. Each lot gets separated according to the name of the hill it grew upon: Karurusi, Maruri, Nyangwe, Ntarambo, Nyabikaranga, Kibenga and Kinyamukizi.
