We have always followed the coffee from Long Miles closely, as we are a big fan of their work and the impact it makes to the sustainability of producing coffee. The largest positive impact is to the small-holder coffee farmers, because they make up the majority of the growers in Burundi. They can sell their coffee cherries for a much higher price when there is a facility that cares for and markets their coffee with greater transparency.

This lot is from the farmers on the hill of Gaharo, and it is processed at the Bukeye Washing Station, the first washing station built by Long Miles. This natural-processed lot is a testament to the processing quality that is able to be achieved with a well-built and run washing station.
