Kirasa Washing station is situated right next to the Kirasa River in Burundi. Kirasa is part of the newly formed Akawa project which was created to help producers escape the cycle of poverty in a sustainable and equitable way. Producers, striving for fairer remunerations and better living conditions, demanded a path towards prosperity which the projects goals strive to meet.


Mill manager Emile Ndikumasabo, alongside agronomist Anne-Marie have been producing natural fertilizer from discarded coffee pulp. The pulp is placed in a shallow pit in the ground where its covered up with soil and allowed to naturally ferment. The end result is used to fertilize the coffee seedlings in their nursery. Once the seedlings grow they are then handed out to farmers to renovate their coffee gardens. Traditionally coffee produced at Kirasa was only washed, but this year Emile and his team implemented a natural process. Special care is taken with sorting and drying on raised beds to produce a clean and sweet cup.
