FARM DETAILS

This coffee is prepared by Ramadhan Salum, Burundian entrepreneur and producer, who has invested to set up several wet mills in the Kayanza region of Burundi. Sun-dried on African beds, this red bourbon is our KIBOKO Label coffee.

Burundi is a small country located between Rwanda, the DRC and Tanzania. The country produces mainly Arabica coffee, more often than not from the "bourbon" variety, prepared using a washing process.

Coffee is grown at high altitudes between 1800m to 2100m on average, and is often characterised by a bright acidity and pleasant notes of citrus, which is particularly the case in the coffees grown in the Kayanza region.

Burundi has a large number of problems to deal with - yields are small and insect attacks are weakening the industry. The absence of a coast and a poor road network also hinder Burundi, meaning it has to export its coffees via Mombasa (Kenya) or Dar es Salaam (Tanzania).

This handicap sometimes affects the quality of coffee and it's a real challenge to preserve the original quality of Burundian coffee. The good health of the sector, the redistribution of wealth and the quality of the coffee are therefore essential for the improvement of the standard of living for the people of Burundi, which is one of the lowest in the world.

Paying more than the Fairtrade price is extremely meaningful in this origin.

COMPOSTABILITY

Roar Gill coffee capsules use a cutting-edge corn-starch-based bioplastic that is certified to be 100% compostable along with all our packaging.

We prefer to build our ideas concerning sustainability into every pod, rather than asking our customers to do the work for us.
