Volcanic soil, high altitude and rainfall, as well as a dry harvest season create perfect growing condition for Burundi. This lot is from the Yandaro washing station located near the border with Rwanda.

The Kibira rainforest surrounds the growing areas that Yandaro services providing a healthy ecosystem that helps retain groundwater reserves and soil nutrition. Yandaro provides a purchase and processing point to over 3500 local farmers from the 22 hills surrounding the station.
