ETHICALLY AND SUSTAINABLY SOURCED
Muyinga is one of least populated and lesser known coffee producing regions of Burundi
Surrounded by around 7000 trees, Nyagishiru can be found in the Buhinyuza Commune of the Muyinga Province of Burundi. The relatively flat land here makes the perfect conditions for the production of naturally processed coffee at good volumes. Nyagishiru comfortably processes coffee from almost 850 families.
Composted coffee pulp is shared with local producers, and seedlings are distributed to farms to increase their yields. What’s more, Matraco has donated to the building of a school and health care centre for the community. As one of only two stations in the area that process coffee, this station is a vital resource for the region’s coffee farmers and their families.
