Overview
Izuba meaning “sun” in Kirundi, is located in the
Kabarore Commune, of Kayanza Province. The Izuba
washing station is set close to a nearby river, providing a
vital and regular fresh water source for coffee processing.
Izuba currently produces washed coffees, and is actively
developing both honey and natural processed lots, that
will become larger in volume this year. The station aims to
provide premiums where possible to not only the farmers,
but the station staff also.

The farmers last season were paid 4% higher than the
market rate, and the employees were paid 25% higher
than local stations; 33% more than the national average.
Once the coffee has been fully processed, the remaining
coffee pulp is turned into a natural fertiliser as it degrades.
When ready, it is distributed to local farmers to add
nutrients to their soil.
