Burundi Kirimiro Kigarama

by Neige LaRue June 09, 2014

Burundi Kirimiro Kigarama

Kigarama is another washing station  under Sogestal Kirimiro. The Sogestal system is a cooperative movement set up in Burundi to assist local farmers with the necessary tools to help increase production, set up washing  stations adequate for clean  coffee processing, and to help the local communities. All this is supported by gaining the farmers access to the global coffee market and securing competitive prices for coffee cherry  based on quality.

Sogestal Kirimiro is fairly large, with 15,000 members and over 40 washing stations. They do a great job with lot separation, allowing coffee buyers the opportunity to select out smaller, quality lots  before they are blended together. The average altitude  for Kigarama is 1650 - 1700 meters and they are part of a group of stations that process coffees of 33 farmer members. These lots are all Bourbon  stock, and this is expressed in the cup as a sweet, bodied, and balanced  cup.
