Our Burundi Nkanda Procasta Mill Fully Washed GrainPro coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Procasta washing station, which is located in Nkanda within the Ngozi Province, Burundi. Pierre Nzeyimana and Léoncie Minani established an export company called Procasta washing station in 2012 to help families process their coffee more easily and generate jobs in the region. The washing station has grown to support cherry processing for 2000 families that cultivate coffee on small plots of land. Procasta collaborates with small producers to purchase fertilizer in bulk, which has lowered cost of production and improved quality, leading to increased earnings from coffee sales. Procasta has also been investing in road and bridge infrastructure.
