Mario & Angelica´s farm is called “Los Milagros” because it helps their family earn a living. They not only grow coffee but also grow cabbage, carrots, lettuce, potatoes and more.
A walk through their farm helps you understand why it´s called The Miracles- because it produces wonders of vegetables and coffee. In fact they are transitioning from vegetables towards greater coffee production.

production, they responded that coffee farming is betterfor the land.

This naturally processed coffee by Cafex/Sambicoffee is from smallholders growing on Canika Hill in Kirundo province, northern Burundi. Cafex was launched by a Belgian-Burundian couple that wanted to combine the coffee production of their ancestral lands with sustainable development and a desire to improve the lives of the local population.
This lot is milled and exported by Ikawa Nziza which is specifically aimed at building and promoting the specialty coffee production in Burundi. Ikawa Nziza’s mill is the first purpose-built specialty drymill in Burundi, situated at altitude and designed to cater for high-quality microlot coffees.
