Potosi is owned by siblings, Rigoberto and Luis Eduardo Herrera, third-generation coffee producers, who come from a long-standing coffee-producing family. Their grandparents started their careers in coffee in 1945 at Potosi farm. After Juan Antonio Herrera and his wife Blanca Ligia Correa purchased the land with existing Typica plants, they added three more cultivars: Red Bourbon, Yellow Bourbon, and Caturra. It was then that Cafe Granja La Esperanza began.

Shortly after taking over, they purchased the land for Finca La Esperanza and expanded their organic coffee production.

Businde is a community washing station (CWS) that's been in operation since 2011. In its second year of operation it was awarded the COE (Cup of Excellence) for the country of Burundi. That's the top prize that's awarded through coffee producing countries. Since, it's been in the top 5 numerous times.

The region surrounding Businde has numerous villages that have locals producing coffee in their backyards. The coffee cultivated in these villages are fascinating to examine. The majority of the plants are surrounding homes and mixed with other agricultural crops which are utilized for day to day consumption. With very little access to pesticides or artificial fertilizers, these plants all thrive in a very jungle-like appearance. In the western world, this is called agro-forestry, where all the crops work in a symbiotic manner and provide different nutrients for the soils and for one another. Here we saw coffee planted among mangos, avocado, citrus, squash, etc. A very natural and very organic style of farming.

Zuberi Matsitsi, the owner of Businde CWS is a very generous man. We've spent time together in Burundi in 2018 and 2019, as well as attended a wedding of a mutual friend that occurred in India in early 2020. Zuberi is very focused on growing volumes sustainably, while paying the local farmers a premium for their cherries and only producing top quality coffee to the market. His natural processed coffees are clean and sweet and vibrant, like this offering here.

Can I put my used bag in the city compost?
Putting these bags in the city of Calgary's compost is not recommended, due to the current processing facility. However, you can compost the outer lining in a healthy home compost (see further down the page for for info).

Alternative
These bags will break down 90% faster in the landfill than the majority of coffee bags on the market.
