A company with deep ties to Burundi
JNP Coffee is a producer, exporter and importer of green coffee from Burundi that we promote in the global specialty coffee market. Even though the company began in 2012, our history with Burundi goes further back. The founder, Jeanine Niyonzima-Aroian, is Burundian. She was born and grew up there before she left her home to attend university in the United States.
Inspired by these deep ties to Burundi, JNP Coffee has built a successful business based on the quality potential of the coffees and the dedicated farmers who care for it. However, we define our success by more than this. The coffee growers in Burundi are our partners and we believe they, too, must share the success. We are building our futures together.
The coffees that we source from the farmers of Burundi are exceptional. The climate, soil, and people of East Africa are unique. Here, many coffees grow as they always have, without genetic modification and washed by fresh, mineral-rich spring water.
We believe that coffee can create a future of hope for the people of Burundi, especially the women and youth, who need to have dreams and successes of their own. JNP Coffee wants to be a model for the next generation of coffee companies and growers, and to move confidently toward a better future. We are guided by the belief that we are here to make a difference.
