Zuberi Matsitsi, owner of Businde washing station, is located in the northern province of Kayanza, close to the Rwandan border.
This is a station with a wide reach to local coffee farmers, processing the cherry of up to 650 local farming families. Businde’s producers received a premium that was 20% above the local market rate this season, by working with the station.
