Kazoza N’Ikawa, roughly translated as “the future is coffee,” is a cooperative in the Kyanza district northern Burundi, a small, landlocked country in East Africa. Its incredibly dense, yet rural, population means that all the coffee produced in Burundi comes from smallholder farmers. The farmers use cooperatives like Kazoza N’Ikawa to process their coffee. At Kazoza N’Ikawa, the coffees from many different producers are combined, and specific lots of coffee are then created based on the continual hand sorting that occurs during throughout processing. We purchased this coffee through Coffee Shrub, who constructed this specific lot from multiple day lot selections.
All coffee orders are roasted on Monday and shipped on Tuesday at 8am CT.
