Burundi is a landlocked country in Africa, about the size of Maryland. They are recovering from a civil war from 1993-2006 where 300,000 people died and no coffee was exported. Now just a decade later, issues of corruption, ethnic inequality, poverty, and unemployment are threatening to start civil war again.
But in the meantime, Crop to Cup importers went into the country 10 years ago and started helping farmers sustain themselves by growing high quality coffees for the global market. This year, up in the mountains around the beautiful Ruvubu National Forest came the best crop of Burundi they have imported so far. Hopefully, work like this will be in time to save the country from another lost tragic period.
