Burundi is one of the smallest coffee producing countries in East Africa. The country has seen great reforms in the coffee sector since 1992 when the government decided to remove itself from direct management of farms and washing stations. With ideal growing conditions and the strong presence of the bourbon variety, many entrepreneurs have taken on the task of bringing Burundi’s exquisite and under-represented coffees to the attention of the specialty coffee market. Kahawa Link Company (KALICO) was founded by two such women, Angele Ciza and Consolata Ndayishimiye, in 2012. They are in charge of seven washing stations in northeastern Burundi near the borders of Rwanda and Tanzania. Our coffee is processed at the Shamba washing station, and grown in the Kirundo and Muyinga provinces. This is our second year offering Shamba, and we love it for its elegant cup profile.
