Burundi Coffee


When you exist to seek the best, the distance you’re prepared to go to source the earth’s best coffee knows no bounds. This spirit of adventure takes us to incredible places where we discover unforgettable coffee.

Deep in the sweeping hills of northern Burundi, we met the resolute coffee farmers from the Kayanza region. As the first cooperative formed in Burundi, their tenacity in learning and applying new knowledge shines through in their world-class coffee.

We source our coffee from the farmers of the Musema Cooperative and pay them directly, ensuring a fair trade that keeps their business sustainable and ours meaningful.

This single origin coffee has a gentle honey aroma brought to life with a winey acidity paired with berry chocolate flavour. This specialty coffee is optimally roasted in South Africa to deliver a taste as rich as the continent it comes from.

This fully washed coffee is grown at altitudes of between 1700 and 1800 metres above sea level and is of the Cofea Arábica Bourbon and Jackson varietals.

Musema Cooperative
Kayanza, Burundi

The Musema Cooperative is located in the Kayanza province of northern Burundi not far from the town of Ngozi.
Musema was the first cooperative established in Burundi and consists of 250 members who supply cherries to the washing station. It was initially supported by the NGO “Food for the Hungry” which provided farmer support, training, and agricultural education.
Bean There began purchasing coffee from Musema in 2011 and we have seen the demand for this exceptional coffee increase every year since. The cooperative is small but committed to excellence which can be seen in the agronomy training made available to farmers, and the improvements in processing techniques at the washing station, including using Ecopulpers which use less water than conventional pulpers.
We have visited Musema regularly since 2011 and we are encouraged to see the development and growth of the cooperative which has resulted in increased yields, improved quality and increased income to farmers. We currently purchase all the coffee that Musema can produce and although the cooperative has no official certification Bean There is committed to paying a Direct Fair Trade premium to the farmers.
