This has been imported by our partner Omwani. We’ve had the delight of showcasing phenomenal coffees from Omwani’s East African offerings including Uganda, Rwanda and now Burundi.
Omwani working in partnership with Burundi-based Migoti Coffee Company and their processing stations to source some of the best coffee across all of Burundi. The name ‘Migoti’ comes from a local indigenous tree, which is also the name of the mountain where Migoti built their first coffee washing station in 2016. The station is operated by a local team of ten permanency staff and over 250 temporary workers who are employed during the season from March to June.
Meet lead farmer of this coffee lot Elie Barantanda and his 21-year-old son Juvenal Ndayikeza. In the first image. Elie has a larger-than-average coffee farm with a total of 1400 trees in Burundi near Lake Tanganyika at 1860 m.a.s.l. Last season Elie brought in a total of 700kg to processing partners Migoti coffee washing station ensuring he gets a fair market price for his harvest. With this cash yield he supports his 7 children and 6 grandchildren.
Juvenal speaks a little English and would one day like to go to University, but currently works alongside his father in the coffee plantation.
