This is a story of a coffee farmer named Mawazo, two goats and a bicycle. It's a short story, but a strong example of the work that IWCA is doing across East Africa.   Since 2012, IWCA Burundi coffee growers have a project to select good cherries and sell the green coffee at best prices in order to have a second payment or a bonus. This crop, the bonus was distributed on 16th of December. They marched with a banner of IWCA Burundi to welcome the team which came for the distribution. ...

We are excited and proud to announce that one of our finest coffees, Burundi Buhorwa Washing Station (Season II!) is now avaialble for sampling and purchase.  We imported 40 tons this year (the Buhorwa community's entire harvest) and the two shipping containers were cracked open and unloaded this morning (4/11/12) at Continental Terminals in New Jersey.

We are pleased to announce our financial transparency report for our Burundi origin. This post adds to our ongoing thread on transparency in Burundi and to our long term Whole Crop Project. Last month’s topic was a highly detailed origin map including micro-region zones and GPS-tagged photos of the Bukeye community. If you haven’t already done so, check it out. Here is our Goal: To better understand, together, how our purchases impact those who can stand to benefit the most, and who give us...

At Crop to Cup we promise you a high detail of transparency, and here's our latest effort to do just that. We assume that since reading our previous post "Mapping a Coffee Region" you've been anxiously awaiting results.  You have, right? Well here are the results, and we'd like to pat ourselves on the back for what we think is one of the most detailed presentations of a coffee origin available to the coffee drinking public.  Sure there are  plenty of  agronomists and co...

Cup to Crop For the past three weeks Crop to Cup has been working in Burundi to get to know the farmers of the Bukeye region, set up reinvestment projects, supervise the preparation for the harvest (about a week away now), and implement a number of initiatives with our coffee's farmers. Last week we organized a fantastic event, called Cup to Crop. At Crop to Cup we strive to connect consumers with the people who grew and process their coffee. Cup to Crop is our way of connecting farmers to the...

One of our partners here at the Buhorwa Washing Station is the Burundi Agribusiness Project (BAP).  Projects like this make me actually happy to pay tax on my hard earned income and our monthly payroll to the US government.  You see, BAP is a USAID-funded project.  It is administered by Development Assistance International (DAI) and Michingan State University’s Institute for International Agriculture.  MSU’s Anne Ottoway initially introduced us to BAP and she is awesome.&...

Taylor here, recently arrived here in Bujumbura and for about 3 weeks starting tomorrow I'll be up at the Buhorwa Washing Station, whose coffee many of you may have tried through C2C.  Dan (C2C Brooklyn) will be joining me on the 15th. In case any of you would like to follow our trip or are looking to learn more about coffee  processing and sourcing, here's a bit of what you can expect from our trip: - An unscientific report on "trickle down" of current world market prices to the far...

Crop to Cup Coffee Co is excited to announce Whole Crop, a groundbreaking new coffee project, as we expand our farmer engagement into Burundi.  This has been 2 years in the making, searching out the right farmers and the right partners to be sure that this was something that could actually happen. The project is centered in and around a washing station called Burhorwa, which is located in Muramvya Province, northeast of the capital, Bujumbura.  Both the washing station setup (2nd high...

Days 4-5 – Bujumbura, Ngozi and Kayanza, Burundi Let’s start off by saying that Burundi is a coffee buyer’s dream. I’ll explain later, so let me first write a bit about where I am. I arrived in the capital, Bujumbura at about 1am from Entebbe, Uganda, after a 3 hour layover at one of the world’s most uncomfortable airports, Nairobi. Driving to my hotel from the airport, I was struck by the calmness of the city. Sure, it was 1am, but having visited other East African capitals such as ...
