Coffee grown in Ngozi Province has a special meaning for JNP Coffee founder Jeanine Niyonzima-Aroian, as that is where my mother grew up. Stories of myfamily welcoming many people into the family home stand behind the name for this coffee. In Kirundi, “Bashitsi” means “guests.” Remote areas of this high-altitude province are well known for quality coffee. We are working with an experienced woman-owned cooperative there, which has more than 600 members. Each woman receives a premium payment reflecting her share of sales in the global marketplace. The JNP Coffee Q-grader has travelled to the dry mill several times to advise the farmers on best practices to strengthen their crops and achieve the highest scores.
