Ngozi is Burundi's second major coffee-producing region located in the north-central portion of the country. The entire region is at 1650 masl or higher where the temperature averages 70°F the entire year. Most producers grow a couple of hundred trees on less than a hectare of land. Coffee is collected at private or government-owned washing stations where coffees are sorted, processed, and dried.
