Producer: Jean-Clement Birabereye
The Burundi Mpanga Kirema washing station is led by Jean-Clement Birabereye, who has years of experience under his belt and an incredible eye for detail. His long-game view of results and relationships shine through in the cup – by paying higher prices for excellent coffee, he motivates farmers to practice meticulous cultivation and optimize harvesting practices.
Located in the Kayanza region of Burundi, the Mpanga washing station works with 3,400 farmers who cultivate their Bourbon variety coffee 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.
