This lot is naturally processed with CIMA yeast fermentation.
This specific yeast was specially developed for coffee production over a four-year period of research and trials.

Burundi is a small, landlocked African country located to the south of Rwanda and between the Democratic Republic of Congo to the West and Tanzania to the East.
Coffee in this country is grown mostly by smallholders, and is often wet-processed.
Burundi's coffee is often said to have flavour characteristics similar to those of its Rwandan neighbour due to the geographic proximity and closely related processing methods.
A number of farmer-education projects are aimed at helping to improve the quality and quantity of the nation's production, and to provide the farmers with greater stability.

Nemba Washing Station was built in 1991 in the Kayanza Commune in the Kayanza province in the North of Burundi.
It sits at an altitude of 1818m. This washing station collects cherries from over 3100 local coffee farmers spread over the 15 neighbouring colonies.
During the season, Nemba processes more than 750 tons of coffee.
These cherries are laid on raised beds to dry where they are repeatedly sorted and sifted to ensure an even drying process.
This on average takes between 10 -14 weather permitting. All farmers are supported and trained in accordance with Good Agricultural Practices (G.A.P).
This training is focussed on farm management, coffee tree pruning, climate change impacts, fertilization, and mulching.
The farmers are also encouraged to engage in the information provided by the saving association villages through which farmers have been taught to take small and manageable loans to expand their business.
Greenco also grow and distribute coffee plants and train farmers on environmental protection,
addressing issues such as soil erosion, water drainage, river protection, and waste management.
