Burundi Fully washed International Women Coffee Alliance

Cup profile

Floral citrus notes with a lot of caramel. Its balanced profile between fruity sweetness on grilled bread aromas made it win a Presidential Cup Of Excellence in 2013.

Burundi is a land with great coffee tradition. Its high altitude, thousands hills, volcanic soils, & abundant rains offer the ideal conditions for the production of exceptional & very exotic coffee. In Burundi there are no large plantations. Coffee is in fact grown in small family-owned farms and cherries are traditionally brought to the nearest coffee washing station.

The wet mill of Kibingo was built in the mid-eighties. It collects the cherries from micro plantations located around the station on the very high altitude hills close to the Congo-Nile Crest.


IWCA (International Women Coffee Alliance) was created in 2011, with the mission to support all aspects related to improving women’s skills through training and information, to enhance their role in Burundian society in general and agriculture in particular, focusing on coffee sector.

Fight discrimination and marginalization of women in the coffee growing community.
