We were excited to bring this coffee in not only because we loved its delicate yet complex profile, but also because it created an opportunity for us to work with two companies that we deeply admire on the same project— Long Miles Coffee and Osito Coffee. Long Miles operates the washing station, and Osito worked with us to get this coffee from Burundi to Pittsburgh. The coffee comes to us from the hills of Ninga. Communities here exist far beyond the reach of electricity. Two rivers and a province border lie between the Bukeye washing station and these hills, with some farmers traveling 22 km along steep, narrow dirt paths to deliver their coffee. Farmers face a plethora of challenges when traveling to and from the washing station, which is why Long Miles aims to eventually be able to build another washing station closer to the hills that these farmers call home. Until then, better practices and increased farmer education remain a focus of Long Miles. Increased quality coffee ultimately means higher prices for farmers, which will hopefully continue to lead to greater economic investment in the region.
