Narrative

Nestled deep within the heart of the small coffee producing country of Burundi, on the border of the northern Kayanza Province, is the village of Bukeye. Bukeye, at 1,760 masl, bustles with all the activity of village life. Just beyond the village, down a dirt road lined with trees, lies the birthplace of Long Miles Coffee the Bukeye Washing Station.
Bukeye was the first washing station built by Long Miles Coffee in January of 2013, and has become a place of innovation since its opening. The washing station has been the launching pad for an extensive organic pesticide program targeting antestia (the colorful bug linked to the potato defect), post-harvest pruning, mulching and fertilizing campaigns. It has been operational for seven seasons, since April of 2014.

Bukeye Washing Station is managed by Agathon Ininahazwe, with the help of Assistant Manager Oswald Niyongabo. The Quality Control manager at the washing station is Aline Kwizera.

This Coffee Plants Trees

When you buy this product, mangrove trees are planted on your behalf in either Madagascar, Mozambique, or Kenya. This gives crucial income to local villagers so they can provide for their families.

Mangrove forests are essential coastal ecosystems. They store four times as much carbon as even tropical rainforest, making them an important tool to mitigate climate change.

The trees are planted by Eden Reforestation Projects.
