From the Nyagashia washing station located outside of Burundi's capital city, Bujumbura, we bring you this stunningly delicate bean! Pronounced NIA-GASH-IYA, the name is representative of a historical tree variety that grows within the Murago region, and continues to serve in the construction of houses within the community.
The Nyagashia mill is a part of the Akawa project, a successful program to help producers escape the cycle of poverty in a sustainable and equitable way. This includes a school built for children of employers at the mill, which today educates 306 pupils. Education extends from generic classroom content all the way to a deeper understanding of coffee agriculture and sustainability, arming the youth of the area with tools for successful coffee farming in the future.
With a cooler growth climate, these cherries have developed slowly, creating greater complexity in the cup, tasting amazing on filter or as an espresso.
