Surrounded by around 7000 trees, Nyagishiru can be found in the Buhinyuza Commune of the Muyinga Province of Burundi. As a province, it is one of least populated and lesser-known coffee producing regions of the entire country. Interestingly, the relatively flat land here makes the perfect conditions for the production of naturally processed coffee at good volumes.
This said Nyagishiru was able to process coffee from almost 850 families this season. These producers received a premium of 18% on top of the local market rate for their harvests, whilst the staff of the station earned almost 60% above the average labour rate.
