The station’s altitude ranges from 1600 – 1800 MASL. Busasa is managed by the coffee washing station manager called Daniel Sayumwe.

Busasa’s coffee washing station was built in 2014 and consists of 6 full time staff and 150 casual seasonal workers. 

The station has a total of 151 african drying beds and works with a total of 1,600 farmers that supply cherries from the surrounding hills.

What is 85+

Coffee is graded on a system called the Q Grading system. This system grades the quality of coffee out of 100 points. Specialty Coffee is any coffee graded at 80 or higher, we only buy coffees graded by coffee professionals at 85 or higher—85+.

Not to mention we bring 90% of our coffees from origin to the Port of Cork, reducing our carbon footprint, and increasing quality.

This is our ethos, it is who we are, and by partnering with us you in turn are part of the WE in—WE ARE 85+

I'm no coffee connoisseur, but someone who works on the road I drink quite an amount of coffee on the daily, so I know a good coffee when I get one, i called into this fine establishment and got what i can only describe as the best coffee of my life, the coffee itself was spectacular the temperature of the drink was absolutely perfect and the staff were very pleasant and welcoming. Very much so plused with my experience here and would highly recommend. Definitely call back in when in Cork again.
