||Washed, Pre-dried, and Dried
Coffee is fully washed and fermented. Once the coffee is fermented, it is pre-dried under shade in order to protect the coffee from the sunlight. After being pre-dried, the coffee is moved to drying beds located under the sun. Coffee is carefully dried and constantly moved to achieve a even dry process. This process of moving the coffee permits the parchment to stay intact, creating a beautiful parchment layer that is not damaged by the sunlight.
The Mpanga Washing Station exemplifies the effort to improve the quality and supporting infrastructure of coffee cultivation in Burundi. With a focus on “quality over quantity” they incentivise farmers to produce coffees of award-winning quality. According to their most recent Facebook post, “Great coffee requires great skill; and great skill is not commodity but the product of well-trained, well-paid, and well-treated workers.”
