This is a washed coffee from Burundi processed at the Gomba Washing Station. The Gomba washing station is located in Buhinyuza District in Muyinga province, bordering Tanzania. The washing station lies at 1433m above sea level and receives cherry from surrounding hills with altitude typically between 1400 and 1600m. Through a BCA project, the Gomba washing station has already registered 2831 coffee producers divided into 97 groups of 30 farmers, each with an average of 304 trees per farm. The farmers are currently organized in groups of 30 people, headed by a lead farmer. The mill has a young agronomist who has a good understanding of coffee production systems and ‘good agricultural practices’ (GAP). This leader acts as a spokesman to facilitate communication and organization of cherry collection with the washing station. Gomba washing station also has its own coffee nursery which supplies new trees for the smallholder farmers in the region.
