One of the fantastic partners we work with in Burundi is Zuberi Matsitsi, owner of Matraco Coffee. One of his stations, Businde, is located in the northern province of Kayanza, close to the Rwandan border. This is a station with a wide reach to local coffee farmers, processing the cherry of up to 650 local farming families.

As a washing station, it is important to consider the payment of workers who process the cherry as well as the price received by those who cultivated them. Businde’s producers received a premium that was 20% above the local market rate this season, by working with the station. As a station, Businde pays its staff almost 60% above the rate for casual labour in Burundi.

To assist with the dispersing of coffee pulp, Matraco distributes this compost as fertiliser to help the farmers nearby. Alongside this, they assist with the yields of local farmers by donating seedlings to their farms. Higher profits accompanied by the potential of more cherry to sell. We thoroughly enjoyed working with this coffee last season, so it's with great pleasure to share this coffee with you, not only for its profile but for the benefits it provides those who produce it.
