Farm Story:

Kagoma was built in 1973 in the Nyamurenza Commune in the Ngozi province. It lies at an altitude of 1488m. The people in this region used to grow their crops together in the same fields. In the morning, before going out to the fields, they would beat traditional Burundian drums (called ingoma in Kirundi). When they returned from the day’s work, they would beat the drums again before heading home. This is where the name ‘Kagoma’ comes from. This washing station collects cherries from over 3000 local coffee farmers spread over the 20 neighboring colonies. During the harvest season, Kagoma processes more than 800 tons of coffee. In the cup, this coffee has good and balanced attributes.
