It was in 1993, just after leaving High School, when the war started in Burundi. I then left for South Africa where I went to pursue and complete certification in Maritime Studies. Following, I went to the USA to further my studies. I went to work in various countries around the world but was longing for peace to return to Burundi. When political stability was announced, I returned to Burundi to follow my dream of setting up a Coffee Bean Washing Station and sourcing the very best organically grown, single origin coffee to be sold globally at a fair price, and to ensure fair trade between the farmer and the buyer.
Coffee farming was always a part of our family business. In 1932, my grandfather introduced coffee to the region where I was born and raised.
