About the Region:

Burundi is a small mountainous country between East Africa and Central Africa with most of its coffee grown at elevations from 1250 – 2000 meters above sea level.

Coffee growing began in the region in the 1930s when the Belgians imported Arabica coffee plants. Today more than 800,000 Burundi families are involved in the industry.
