Turihamwe, which means “together” in Kirundi, is the name of Burundi’s first washing station built and owned exclusively by women farmers. With the strong support of the International Women’s Coffee Alliance and importer, JNP Coffee, the producers of Turihamwe pooled their premiums and savings from coffee sales in order to control the production and marketing process for their coffee. By working together they doubled their total production in 2 short years. This stellar coffee is the only naturally processed microlot from Turihamwe in 2020.
