Burundi Dukorere Ikawa Cooperative:

Looking like two specks of rice on the map of Africa, Burundi and neighboring Rwanda bear remarkable similarities in their coffee production, one of the mainstays of both economies. Both countries are landlocked and the trade routes out towards ports and shipping routes are complex and dangerous. They are also close-to-ideal for coffee production owing to proximity to the equator, altitude, rich, volcanic loam soil, abundant rainfall and hard-working, conscientious farmers.


Much foreign aid has poured in over the last couple decades and the while both Burundi and Rwanda remain two of the poorest countries in the world, they are on the upswing.

The Kayanza region where this coffee comes from is a northern region, near the Rwandan border.
