ABOUT THE REGION / WASHING STATION


Yandaro station sits close to the border with Rwanda, in the Kayanza province. Both countries share special growing conditions in the corridor that connects the south of Rwanda to the north of Burundi. This region produces many of our favorite coffees both in Rwanda and Burundi.

The washing station is in the valley where the eponymous Yandaro river runs. The growing area around the station benefits from being close to the Kibira Rainforest. A rainforest helps maintain groundwater reserves and adequate nutrition levels in the soil for the region surrounding it. Stationed near the rainforest and a large river, Yandaro station is in a very strategic location within a high-potential coffee region.

The station serves 3,190+ local coffee producers from 22 hills around the station. The average altitude in the area is 1,800 meters above sea level. Yandaro processes more than 1,200 metric tons of coffee throughout the harvest season. The region has a mild climate with average temperatures between 18 and 25° Celsius, depending on the altitude.

The washing station participates in a number of farmer outreach and support projects including a livestock rearing project and a range of Farmer Hub projects centered on strengthening cooperatives and improving yields.

        When will I receive my coffee?

        Tracking services are provided and you will receive your tracking number once we dispatch your order.

        Parcel Post by AustPost normally takes under 6 business days and Express Post by AustPost normally under 3 business days.

        Upon receiving your order, we generally send your order out within two business days as we aim for you to have the freshest roast possible.

        We do have roast schedule's and some orders may be delayed waiting for those roast days - we will let you know if there's any lengthy delays.

        *Sundays and Public Holidays access are closed

        Place your order, then give us some time to roast and pack for you (usually less than two business days).

        Once received ready for pickup notification, come in, check in, and say hi to either Matty or Po.

        Can you grind my coffee?

        Sorry, we sell whole beans only.

         
        The reason being is that pre-grinding freshly roasted coffee means that it affects the integrity of the coffee and this makes the coffee expire a lot faster. It's like having artisan bread being pre-sliced or a piece of fruit being left out in the sun!

        I have other questions

        Send us your queries from our website "chat with us" function, our roasters Matty & Po will get back to you as soon as possible, if they are not online, you will get an email response.
