Nemba is two entities: a cooperative and a washing station located in high altitude hills close to the Congo-Nile divide. The washing station was built in 1991, and now collects cherries from over 2000 local farmers; in Burundi there are no large plantations, coffee is grown on small family-owned farms. High altitudes, numerous hills, volcanic soils and abundant rains offer the ideal conditions for the production of exceptional and exotic coffee.

The Kayanza region is in the north of the country and most known for being the water source for the Nile river; a unique water that is used to process coffee cherries at all the neighbouring washing stations. This water is just one of many reasons that this cooperative regularly performs well in the prestigious Cup of Excellence.
