Elijah has farmed coffee for 20 years on Murambi Hill with his wife and six children. They own 950 Arabica coffee trees and lease another 800. His fertilizing practices (manure, cut grasses, banana leaves) contributed to their successful yield of 13,860 pounds last season.
Elijah enjoys the rural life and the potential to make a good income farming coffee. He has hope that his children will benefit by continuing to live in the rural community and by watching his example.
The Nyabiraba Commune is the furthest commune from the Migoti processing station. Found on the road to Ijenda from Bujumbura. Ijenda is where the highest peak in Burundi is located – Mount Heha around 2800 metres. The area of Nyabiraba is well known for its tea plantations, due to the altitude the temperature is cool and perfect for high-quality Arabica and tea growth.
The coffee goes through two stages of fermentation. One wet for 12 hours, and dry for a further 16 hours. The coffee is then dried on African raised beds for, on average 21 days.
Not Recommended for Automatic Bean to Cup Machines - When brewing speciality coffee, it is important to use the correct equipment or extraction methods (espresso, filter, plunger) for which the coffee has originally been intended. Following specific recipes (dosages, temperatures, extraction times) is also helpful in achieving a quality cup of coffee. For Automatic bean to cup machines we recommend our Manhattan Project range of coffees - https://za.truth.coffee/collections/the-office-fix, perfectly engineered for the home office or workplace grind.
