SEHE

Le Burundi est un petit pays au carrefour de l'Afrique de l'Est et Centrale, situé entre le Rwanda, la RDC et la Tanzanie. Les plantations sont souvent situées entre 1800 et 2100 mètres d'altitude et le pays produit en grande majorité du bourbon rouge préparé par voie lavée.
La production de café burundais, initiée par les Belges dans les années 20 s'est rapidement développée et emploie aujourd'hui 55% de la population active. La bonne santé de la filière est donc essentielle pour l'accroissement du niveau de vie des burundais qui est l'un des plus faibles au monde. Or, 95% de la filière appartient à deux gros acteurs. Belco a donc fait le choix de sourcer différemment en travaillant avec le seul producteur indépendant du pays, Salum. Entrepreneur, dirigeant d'une entreprise de transport ultra performante et passionné de café, il possède sa propre ferme et 4 stations de lavage.

Sehe est l'une des 4 stations de lavage lui appartenant. Elle est située à 1700 mètres d'altitude dans la région de Kayanza et compte 2500 arbres. Les cafés qui y sont traités proviennent des micro-plantations de 1500 fermiers aux alentours.

The history of the producer

The story
of the producer

In this country, where 95% of the coffee industry is controlled by just 2 major players, we have opted for a different sourcing method.
An entrepreneur and self-taught coffee producer, Salum is the only Burundian farmer to own his own farm and washing stations. His high-quality work has confirmed that we made the right choice when changing our sourcing method several years ago.
His farm is located in Mbirizi. It is one of the largest in the country with some 7,000 trees.
His 4 washing stations are Buzira, Shembati, Sehe and Butaganzwa. They are all located at altitudes of between 1,700 and 2,100 meters and Salum has a working relationship with over 8,700 farmers.
In order to encourage his producers to harvest only very ripe cherries, Salum pays a much higher price for one kilo of cherries than the actual market price, in a country where the standard of living is among the lowest in the world. He has also set up his own transport company to control how his coffees are transported from the washing station to the port.
