A cornerstone of the Wilatta direct trading business model. Enjoy this super unique coffee from the Buhorwa Washing Station, in Bukeye Commune, Muramvya Province, Burundi.

Truly small-scale farming and small-scale processing, grown on small family-owned plots of land on the slopes of Mt. Elgon (Kenya- Uganda border). Farmers hand-pick the ripe and red coffee "cherries" and within hours the fruits are pulped in small batches via hand- powered pulpers and small washing/fermentation bins in farmers' backyards (as opposed to a central washing station where farmers bring their coffee for third-party processing) before natural drying under the sun. The remaining dried "parchment" around the green coffee bean is removed down the mountain in the town of Mbale. Ready-for-roast green beans are then transported by truck across the Uganda-Kenya border at Malaba and across Kenya to the port of Mombasa; shipped by sea to US.
