Empowering Burundi’s Women Coffee Producers

As a woman-owned company, we prioritize supporting not only women in the U.S., but women all over the world. Though they make up almost 70% of the manual labor on coffee farms, women coffee producers are often overlooked when it comes to decision-making, trading, and business ownership. Coffee farmers in general are already vulnerable to low pay, food scarcity, and limited legal protection, but women coffee producers are even more at risk than their male counterparts. At Grand Paradé, our priority is our farmers -- especially women farmers. This is why we offer a wide variety of coffees produced exclusively by women: including this one from the Burundi Gatukuza Women Co-op, a pioneering women’s empowerment group. The Burundi Kayanza Gatukuza women is made up of over 500 small-holder farmers, whom we’ve partnered with directly to ensure they’re receiving fair wages and the tools and training they need to not only survive, but thrive.

Burundi - The Perfect Environment for Coffee

Because Burundi neighbors Rwanda, its coffee is similar in flavor. Burundi coffee is highly acidic, meaning it’s naturally bright and full of citrus and berry notes. In addition, the country’s high altitudes further ensure a flavorful cup. Our coffee is specifically grown in Kayanza: a region in northern Burundi with mild weather and altitudes of up to 2,000 meters. These optimal conditions produce a profoundly well-balanced, rich cup of coffee -- unlike any other in the world. If you’re a fan of Kenyan coffees and their fruity, full-bodied nature, our Burundi just might be your new favorite.

However, our vision for Grand Paradé goes beyond the cup, and great coffee isn’t the only reason we love Burundi. We love this country for its beautiful, vibrant culture; we love this country for its people. We firmly believe that farmers are the bedrock of any coffee business, which is why we take a farmer-centered approach and put our coffee producers at the heart of everything we do. By maintaining direct relationships with our Burundi farmers and providing them with financing, training, and a sense of community, we can ensure that the Grand Paradé experience is beneficial to both you and our farmers.
