In East-Central Africa, nestled between coffee-producing nations, lies Burundi. In 2013, a coffee cooperative named Twaranyuzwe (meaning “We have understood”) was created by hundreds of small coffee farmers. The coop allows small farms to work together for better resources, business, and communities. Out of 915 coffee producers, half of them belong to the cooperative and contribute their coffee cherries to the Kuvumu Washing Station. Only ripe red cherries are processed, resulting in a full-bodied, sweet and citrusy coffee with notes of peach, lime, grapefruit, and black tea.
