Nyagishiru can be found in the Buhinyuza Commune of the Muyinga Province of Burundi. As a province, it is one of least populated and lesser-known coffee producing regions of the entire country. Interestingly, the relatively flat land here, makes the perfect conditions for the production of naturally processed coffee at good volumes.
Nyagishiru processes coffee from almost 1850 families in the area. These producers received a premium of 18% on top of the local market rate for their harvests, whilst the staff of the station earned almost 60% above the average labour rate. The station processes around 800 metric tons of cherry each year, dried across 270 raised beds. The station’s 7 full-time staff are managed by manager Hussein Ndayishimiye, with 170 seasonal staff hired during the peak season.
A beautifully balanced cup with notes of green apple, brown sugar sweetness and a soothing chamomile finish.
