About the coffee

To say that the Heza washing station is "remote" would be an understatement, and yet the community that lives in the surrounding hills is a special community, made up primarily of coffee farmers. Heza means "beautiful place" in Kirundi, the local language of Burundi.

With its panoramic views and ever-changing East African skies, this washing station lives up to its name.

Heza is the second car wash built by Long Miles Coffee and has been in operation since April 2014. The fantastic conditions in Kayanza Province and the volume of ripe, dense cherries brought to the station have led the Long Miles team to focus on pioneering a sun-dried natural coffee initiative.

Heza was established at the foot of Gitwe Hill in January 2014 and has been producing coffee for six seasons now. From here, the Rwandan border and the peaks of Kibira, Burundi's only native rainforest, can be seen in the distance. The exceptional altitude, temperate climate and proximity to Kibira bring out the best in the coffee, which grows both on the trees and is produced in the washing plant.

The individual microclimates of each hill combined with the ideal conditions of the station guarantee unique and exquisite notes in every cup.
