We are thrilled to have you back again for another Seed To Cup, a new podcast on the Sprudge Podcast Network diving deep into the stories of the coffee industry’s most fascinating founder, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders.
On the fourth episode of Seed To Cup, Sprudge Editor-At-Large and The Chocolate Barista Founder Michelle Johnson interviews JNP Coffee founder Jeanine Niyonzima-Aroian. Niyonzima-Aroian launched JNP Coffee in 2012—offering award-winning specialty coffees and enabling “gender-sensitive development strategies” in Burundi. JNP Coffee’s website states Niyonzima-Aroian “is the only woman majority shareholder of a large Burundian coffee conglomerate—a role model for what a Burundian woman can achieve in her country.”

Mugano micro-lots available. These exceptional fully-washed Burundi coffees of the Bourbon variety that come from an elevation of 1,932m ASL. They are naturally sweet. Mugano is grown by a group of forty farmers who are part of Dushime™ ("Let's be thankful" in Kirundi) program organized by JNP Coffee. These farmers receive a premium based on the prices that their quality coffees achieve in the global market, and most invest part of their premium back into their farms, continually improving their quality. No wonder Mugano coffee has been a COE winner four times. JNP Coffee is currently featuring mico-lots of Mugano Coffee for spot sale. Let's Talk! firstname.lastname@example.org
