To source this unique offering, our first from tiny, landlocked Burundi, we relied on the help of our friends at the Long Miles Coffee Project, who have been assisting coffee farmers in Burundi for many seasons. Gaharo Hill is a special place for Long Miles, the first washing station built by them rests at the feet of Gaharo Hill. Gaharo farmers are neighbors and co-workers—many of the dedicated washing station employees and their families call Gaharo home. When farmers first arrived, there was no one to welcome them; only empty land waiting to be farmed. As farmers began to work the land and plant crops, the hill was named to mean “We are full” in Kirundi (the local language of Burundi). Today, over 600 farming families live in Gaharo. We are stunned with the quality, care, and consistency displayed in the final product, and hope you will be too.
