A collaboration coffee for the Coffee House Project Bristol. Sourced by Hard Lines and roasted by Triple Co Roast
In 2016 we partnered with Greenco, a producer based in Ngozi, Burundi and who we believe reflect similar social and social values as held by Raw Material. The washing
stations are privately owned and employ local managers to manage the stations throughout the year, and employ seasonal workers from the surrounding area through the harvest season. Each washing station employs 3 to 5 permanent workers and is run by a manager who is also the agronomist who provides farming advice to the local communities. The average pay for the regular workers is 300,000 Burundian Francs per month. This is double the pay of other competing washing stations in the area.
