Learn more about this Kibingo Coffee

Kibingo CWS works with over 3000 small producers spread over 18 hills in the area surrounding Kayanza in Northern Burundi to produce a number of lots.
For this particular lot, the coffee cherries are floated, then left in tanks, where it's mixed with a Cima yeast substrate, and covered with plastic sheets and left for 72hours to ferment. Following this fermentation phase, the coffee is taken to raised beds to dry.
At the washing station, farmers can obtain organic fertilizer from composted coffee pulp. To promote farm renovation, producers can get low-cost, subsidized seedlings at the washing station. Each Station has it's own nursery for this purpose.

Kibingo washing station participates in a number of farmer outreach and support projects including a goat and pig project, Farmer Hub, strengthening cooperatives and distributing fertilizer and coffee trees.

Despite the ubiquity of coffee growing in Burundi, each smallholder produces a relatively small harvest. The average smallholder has approximately 250 trees, normally in their backyards. Each tree yields an average of 1.5 kilos of cherry so the average producer sells about 200-300 kilos of cherry annually.
