Nemba Station is a coffee cherry collection and processing site located in Kayanza, Burundi's northern province that borders neighboring Rwanda. Farmers from surrounding "collines", or hill tops, deliver their harvest in whole cherry at the Nemba site, where it is then wet processed and then dried. Kayanza Province itself sits at 1800 meters above sea level, and the farms from the 15 hill tops that serve the Nemba Station top out at over 2000 meters. Farmers grow mostly older bourbon types, the original coffee cultivar introduced to the area in the 1930's by Catholic monks traveling from the island of Reunion. Nemba has been around since the early 1990;s, and has won several awards for their coffee, including 1st place in 2015 Cup of Excellence competition and best of Burundi in 2016.
Note: To ensure the highest quality, all coffee is roasted-to-order
