Izuba

The Izuba processing station lies in the Kababore commune in the north of the Kayanza region, right on the border between Rwanda and Burundi. Izuba is managed by Ntama Appolinaire, in close collaboration with the team from Raw Material Burundi, and employs 250 seasonal workers in the region. The Kayanza region has excellent potential for high quality coffee, partly due to its location near the Kibira forest national park, meaning healthy and rich soils. This potential is something we have seen for many years through our partnership with the Long Miles Coffee Project, also located in Kayanza just a short drove to the south of Izuba.
