Burundi Kibira

Like many producers in East Africa, Burundi began cultivating coffee at the urging of European colonizers. After gaining independence in 1962, coffee cultivation remained in the hands of private individuals for over two decades. However, during this period, the quality and quantity of coffee produced were very low due to subsequent political turmoil and private disinterest in coffee farming.

The government then took over coffee production and controlled the trade for three decades. It was hoped that the government could strengthen the industry by improving productivity and profitability, but this project did not materialize as expected. After several years, the government partially relinquished control and granted other private companies access to production areas.

Since then, the coffee sector has continued to move towards privatization, and the quality and reputation of Burundi coffee have consistently improved from 2009 onwards.
