Sehe’s name comes from the washing station where this coffee is processed. Most farms in Burundi are quite small: typically less than half a hectare in size. Because of this, farmers from this region don’t have their own processing facilities; they rely on cooperatives or washing stations like Sehe to buy and process the coffee they produce.

This means Sehe coffee – like most ‘lots’ from Burundi – is a mixture of coffee from several local farms, with beans of the same quality carefully blended together before going to market. While this limits the coffee’s traceability (‘microlots’ from a single farm are just not possible in this region), Sehe honours the local farmers’ dedication by ensuring their coffee maintains its quality in the post-harvest process.

The coffee you enjoy is a result of their hard work – not to mention the care that goes into every stage of the process.

As part of a group of washing stations spread across Ethiopia, Testi West Arsi works with smallholder farmers to produce high quality coffees. Its aim is not just to ensure quality, but to create a sustainable community for future generations of coffee producers.

To help achieve this, the station is working on several community projects; one initiative is making clean water more readily available to coffee farmers and their families. Another is funding and setting up local schools so that farming families do not need to relocate to give their children an education.

We are extremely happy to find this high-quality coffee on the cupping table. And even happier to support the good work Testi West Arsi is doing amongst the Ethiopian coffee farming community.
