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.
