Arrived late July 2016. This current crop lot of Burundi is Fair Trade certified and comes from the Kanovera Cooperative located in the Ntamba village in the Commune of Musigati near Bubana Province bordering Rwanda. The Cooperative produces 960 bags of coffee per year and is one of the eleven sub-coops of COCOCA, an association for coffee growers in Burundi founded in 2009; as of 2015 the Coop consisted of 160 members. All cherries collected here are fully washed, creating a pronounced acidity and clean cup. Following processing cherries are dried on a patio and solar drying machine.This is the first time in the Cooperatives history that a lot has been Fair Trade certified.
