Description

Step into the world of Burundian coffee with Migoti Coffee Company's fully washed Red Bourbon coffee. Named after the mountain on which it grows, Migoti's coffee washing station in Bujumbura Province is surrounded by ideal conditions for coffee production: high elevations, abundant rainfall, and the perfect climate for Arabica Bourbon coffee trees.
With an average of 150-200 coffee trees per farm, coffee production in Burundi has long been a means to rebuild the agrarian sector and to increase foreign exchange, as well as a reflection of the country's cultural heritage. Bourbon coffee, in particular, is grown at high elevations and is characteristically "sweet with bright acidity, big body, floral, citrus and spiced with wild notes."

This fully washed Red Bourbon coffee from Migoti Washing Station embodies those characteristics and more. With its delicious notes of apple juice, marshmallow, and orange zest, every sip is a journey into Burundi's unique flavors. This coffee is made up of multiple smallholders, each adding their own variety and character to the final product.

By purchasing this coffee, you're not only getting a delicious cup but also supporting a community of coffee farmers and workers. Migoti purchases coffee cherries directly from the farmers who harvest and deliver them to the washing station, providing employment to over 250 temporary workers during the coffee season from March to June.

Producer Information

Migoti Coffee Company is a community-focused business that is making a positive impact on coffee farmers in Burundi. In 2016, they built a coffee washing station at Migoti Mountain and partnered with industry experts to ensure they have the technical expertise to produce high-quality green coffee. Today, Migoti purchases coffee cherries directly from the farmers who harvest and deliver them to the station, where they're processed and prepared for export.


Over the past three coffee seasons, Migoti Mountain has produced over 300 tons of green coffee, earning excellent cupping scores and consistently ranking among the best specialty coffee from Burundi. The success is largely due to the dedication of the local team, including ten permanent staff and over 250 temporary workers who are employed during the coffee season from March to June. The majority of the temporary staff are women, who work tirelessly on the raised drying tables, ensuring the coffee is of the highest quality.


Migoti Coffee Company also provides ongoing education to coffee farmers, helping them increase yields from their coffee trees by up to ten-fold through best farming practices such as pruning and proper care, intercropping, planting shade trees, utilizing green fertilizers, stabilizing soils and natural pest control.


By purchasing Migoti's green coffee, you're not only supporting a sustainable business that values its community but also getting high-quality specialty coffee from Burundi.
