About Burundi - Nemba
Nemba station lies in the northern province of Kayanza. Each washing station is managed and lead by an agronomist. This agronomist oversees the implementation of good agricultural practice and farmer education. They collaborate with the producers to ensure they have access to the necessary farming tools. The agronomist also helps farmers determine and implement the practices best suited to the specific growing conditions of their farming plots.
Nemba uses a monitoring system to ensure traceability all along the production and processing chain. All 3,000+ producers are smallholders who own an average of 150 coffee trees. The farms delivering cherry to Nemba are all located around 1,700+ meters above sea level, near the Kibila forest. The washing station has over two hundred drying tables and can process up to 750 metric tons of coffee cherry annually.
Nemba also participates in a number of farmer outreach and support projects include a goat and pig project, Farmer Hub, strengthening cooperatives and distributing fertilizer and coffee trees.

We roast 100% ARABICA BEANS, that are responsibly sourced.
Our coffee is Small-Batch Roasted in our 1kg Drum Roaster called Jack (think magic beans!)
Small-batch Roasting ensures the end product is of the finest quality and as we roast small amounts at a time it means the coffee available to purchase is very very fresh!
We sell Whole Beans, ground for ESPRESSO or FILTER. We also offer Green Beans if you prefer to roast your own.
