Burundi - Izuba

£11.00

Izuba meaning “sun” in Kirundi, is located in Runinya, Kabarore Commune, of Kayanza Province. The Izuba washing station is set close to a nearby river, providing a vital and regular freshwater source for coffee processing. The station is managed by Ntama Appolinaire, who works alongside Prosper Merrimee, the operational manager of Raw Material Burundi. Ryamukona is one of three hills surrounding Izuba washing station and one of the areas from which coffee is collected or delivered from. This is a naturally processed Red Bourbon varietal which we find to be sweet, floral and complex.
