With Burundi continuing to face social and political difficulties, a major challenge for the coffee sector is the government’s ownership and operations of the washing stations, making transparency questionable throughout the country. However there are a few privately owned washing stations, working hard to continue to improve quality.

Muyinga province is tends to be overshadowed by in larger neighbour, Kayanza, although the cup quality is similar to that of Kayanza with a delicate and refined body on top of sweetness and floral notes.

Murango:

Murango, a small washing station located in the province of Muyinga in the North Eastern corner of the country, was bought back from the government in 2012 by the all-female owned Kalico Cooperative. Murango favour a single fermentation method using 9 different fermentation tanks to keep the lots separate until they are dried and cupped for quality. The lower scoring lots are blended for commercial coffee, with the best lots remaining separate for sale as microlots. This lot comes from the peak of the harvest and is amongst the highest scoring lots from this station in 2016.

At Murango there is a comprehensive policy in place for the management of their 5 hectare farm with respect to fertilisers and sprays. With a preference for natural products they return all the coffee cherries to the trees as an organic fertiliser and use sprays in limited amounts, only when absolutely necessary.
