Before the beginning of the season This is our last newsletter before the beginning of the season. In a few days the cherries will be red, ripe and ready to be picked. That means that within a few weeks we will be opening our washing stations to start collecting and processing this season's harvest. Before we begin the chapter of 2019 harvest, we would like to start this newsletter by thanking all our customers for the trust put in us throughout the last year. We hope our coffees arrived well and fresh and brought some sun from Burundi with them to warm up your winter days!
March: Coffee Harvest Season In Burundi, the arrival of March unequivocally means that the harvest is here. While most of the coffee cherries are still green, our team is working very hard both in the office and at our coffee washing stations preparing the upcoming harvest season. Like every year, March will be a very busy month for us, and we love it.
#Olympicafe To get off to a flying start of the year, on February 8th we got together to celebrate for the very first time the #Olympicafe. We spent the morning playing football, basketball and volleyball together with our friends from Bugestal. After a break we met again to share lunch. We had a delicious traditional meal and enjoyed the afternoon between speeches, special awards, music and dancing. If you want to know more, please visit our Facebook page and follow us on Instagram.
Upcoming Events As it could not be otherwise, this year we will participate once again in the Cup of Excellence. Although we are aware that there are still several months before the competition takes place, we also know that the Cup of Excellence is a long-distance race and so we want to prepare well. Indeed, running perfectly monitored quality control and processing
operations from the very first day will be necessary to bring home our fourth consecutive title!

Words From Carlos As I write these lines, the season is inevitably approaching and this is evident by the many cherries visible in the coffee trees, an indication that next season's harvest is about to begin. We are now in a period of preparation and planning, to ensure that the harvest is a success and that the quality of the coffee we achieve is the best possible, as well as the life of the farmers who grow it. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the hard work of the people who have put all their efforts so that we can continue producing the finest specialty coffee Burundi has to offer. This includes all our employees, partners, customers... And of course, our farmers, without whom none of this would be possible. We will keep you updated in the next newsletters, this time with the drying tables full of coffee!
