For years, we have admired the hard work and determination Angele Ciza, founder of Kahawa Link Company or Kalico, has done to promote quality Burundi coffee on a global scale.  Founded in 2012, Kalico started with seven washing stations in the Kirundo and Muyinga Provinces in North-East Burundi.  Serving over 3,000 smallholder farmers, it was important to ensure the highest quality from farm to farm.  Angele and her team began several outreach programs to educate farmers on better cultivating and harvesting practices.  In addition to education, she has also opened the door to investment by offering micro-credits and insurances to farmers in the hopes of securing their future equity in coffee.

We are excited to showcase Gasura and look forward to offering more microlots from Kalico later this year!
