This wonderful offering of Burundi Kibingo Honey Processed in itself is a very unique and hidden gem in the coffee world .Kibingo was built in 1986 in the Kayanza Commune in the Kayanza province. It lies at an altitude of 1,893m, close to the Congo-Nile Crest. The washing station is known for its wooden bridge that was built over the river that runs through it. The name 'Kibingo' comes from the Kirundi word 'urubingo' which means 'reeds'. Reeds were planted along the river to contain the water and to prevent the surrounding soils from eroding.
This washing station collects cherries from over 3,000 local coffee farmers spread over the 18 neighboring colonies. During the harvest season, Kibingo processes more than 650 tons of coffee.
