The Kibingo Washing station was built in 1986 in the Kayanza province of northern Burundi. The name ‘Kibingo’ comes from the Kirundi word ‘urubingo’ which means ‘reeds’. Reeds were planted along the river that runs through the washing station to contain the water and to prevent the surrounding soils from eroding. This washing station collects cherries from over 2,750 local coffee farmers spread over the 18 neighboring hills. During the harvest season Kibingo processes more than 650 tons of coffee. This coffee is a fruit bomb that is sure to delight. You’ll find lively aromatics of bubblegum, raspberry, and quite a rainbow of flavors: strawberry, raspberry, tangerine, white grape, and floral tones. In addition to being incredibly yummy, sales from this coffee have contributed to farmers in a few specific projects: livestock distribution, health insurance, and solar panel installation.
