Kahawa Link Company (Kalico, for short) is a network of washing stations in Burundi’s northeastern regions of Kirundo and Muyinga, owned and operated by Angele Ciza and Consolata Ndayishimiye. Angele was the first woman to purchase coffee farms and washing stations after the government relinquished control of the coffee sector in 2009. Kalico has since grown to 7 washing stations which collectively purchase coffee cherry from over 25,000 farmers in specific communities throughout Kirundo and Muyinga. This lot represents hundreds of farmers who deliver ripe coffee cherry to two of Kalico’s washing stations, Muramba and Murago, where it is bulked into community day lots, washed, and dried on raised beds. Harvest in the region peaks in May and June.
