Nyagishiru Natural, Burundi
A sweet coffee with an acidity reminiscent of apple. With notes of almond, rounded off with a finish that reminds us of a frangipane. Delicious filter brewing!

Surrounded by around 7000 trees, Nyagishiru can be found in the Buhinyuza Commune. It is one of least populated and lesser-known coffee producing regions of the country and the relatively flat land here, makes perfect conditions for the production of naturally processed coffee.
Nyagishiru processes coffee from almost 1850 families in the area. These producers received a premium of 18% on top of the local market rate for their harvests, whilst the staff of the station earned almost 60% above the average labour rate. The station’s 7 full-time staff are managed by manager Hussein Ndayishimiye, with 170 seasonal staff hired during the peak season.
Profits have been donated to the building of a school and health care centre for the community. As one of only two stations in the area that process coffee, this station is a vital resource for the region's coffee farmers and their families.
