Roaster's Notes

The word Akawa is the native Burundian word for coffee.

The organisation helps coffee farmers in Burundi raise the production and quality of their crops and supports them in demanding a higher price for their coffee. The project's directives are based on UTZ certification standards, a certification program for sustainable farming of coffee, tea, cocoa and hazelnuts.

Farmers are supported to grow coffee sustainably for long-term ecological balance. A portion of the profits also go towards building infrastructures that give access to clean water for local families.
