A bit more about what makes this coffee special...

You have to cross over three rivers and pass by two province borders to reach Bumba hill. The farming communities that call Bumba home are far beyond the reach of clean drinking water and electricity. Coffee is the most important crop grown on the hill, closely competing with corn and beans. Step closer to the center of the hill and you’ll find a local market where people sell baskets full of freshly harvested crops and trade other household essentials. Only one primary school stands tall on Bumba hill.

About Long Miles Coffee Project: 

Our founders, Ben and Kristy Carlson, moved to Burundi in 2011 and saw that both injustice and poor farming practices permeated the country’s newly privatized coffee industry. They also saw that roasters around the world had a difficult time getting consistently great coffees from Burundi. In an effort to see positive change in both farmers’ and roasters’ lives, Long Miles Coffee was born. 

"To us, coffee production is a combined effort that takes into account the needs of coffee farmers and the needs of the roasters we work with worldwide. When you trust us with a coffee order not only do you get a thoughtfully produced coffee, but you directly impact coffee farming communities. Beyond that, you have the opportunity to build relationships with specific hills and those who grow coffee there, year upon year.  

Coffee holds so much potential. It has the ability to change a landscape and transform a people, but it is so easy to feel distant from the origin of your coffees and the impact your purchase makes on coffee-growing communities. We understand your need for both transparency and great coffee, which is why we started Long Miles Coffee as a farmer-driven coffee production model back in 2013. Our first coffee season we worked with just fifty coffee farmers, we now work with over 5,500 coffee farming families on eleven unique hills within Burundi, with expansion efforts underway into Uganda and Kenya."
