The Izuba washing station is located in the small area of Runinya, Kayanza district, Northern Burundi. Izuba is an all-female producer association, with a total of 454 contributors, operated by UK based social enterprise Raw Material.

Raw Material supports the local producers by serving as quality guidance to the station manager and providing access to the specialty market through the exportation of green coffee, which otherwise might not find its way to buyers prepared to pay premiums for quality, such as Seven Seeds. Higher cherry prices incentivise the implementation of better practices which in turn create a sustainable way of living for producers involved in these projects.

Izuba is a Kirundi word, translating to 'sun', Ishurwe meaning 'flower'. Both translations perfectly suit the flavour profile of this coffee, with its plump sweetness and notes of ripe fruit and delicate white flowers. A rustic, spiced profile adds a level of complexity. We have roasted this lot for filter brewing to showcase the delicate nature of this coffee.


ROASTING SCHEDULE

We roast three days a week; Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The cut off time to be included in the day's roast is 7:30 AM (AEST) that morning. We dispatch the business day after the coffee is roasted. So if your coffee is roasted on Monday, our freight carriers will pick it up from us on Tuesday.

We are closed on public holidays and weekends; our roast and dispatch schedule will shift to the next business day.

Read the Impact Report

It's been a few years since we've showcased any coffee from Burundi, due mainly to the heavy reduction in output during COVID. We are excited to kick-start our Burundi sourcing program again, working with Raw Material as our sourcing partners and bringing you this coffee from the Izuba Washing Station, an all-female producer association.
