Burundi, Nyagashiha Akawa
ABOUT THE BEAN
Nyagashiha washing station is one of many wet mills that form the Akawa project, created to help farmers escape the cycle of poverty. Located 86km south of the capital Bujumbura, Nyagashiha is surrounded by steep valleys where most of the land is used by farmer communities. Delivered on the day of picking, the coffee beans are sorted and fermented for an average of 12 18 hours. After fermentation, the washed beans are moved to drying beds for an average of 2 weeks.
The ideal growing conditions, and the rigorous quality control, results in a cup with incredible cleanliness and consistency.
