This coffee from the Matongo commune was a first-place winner of the coveted Cup of Excellence in 2013. Processed through one of Burundi’s few double fermentation washing stations, Kinyovu coffee cherries are cultivated by women coffee farmers in a high-altitude microclimate, grown among tea, bananas, beans and cassava plants. Through a partnership with a nonprofit organization of women and men in the coffee industry, these farmers receive training on best practices for quality coffee production, from caring for the trees to careful sorting of the ripened cherries during harvest. JNP Coffee pays women farmers a share of the premium for their high-quality coffee earns in the global market. These payments enable new economic opportunities and provide a better quality of life for their families, especially their children.
