One of the fantastic partners we work with in Burundi is Zuberi Matsitsi, owner of Matraco Coffee. One of his stations, Busasa, is located in the northern province of Muyinga.
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+
