About Burundi Natural Hills

Gaharo holds a special place in the heart of "Long Miles Coffee". This is not just one of the hills in their story, it is the hill where the journey began. The first washing station built by Long Miles rests at the feet of Gaharo hill, on a piece of land that seemed to be long forgotten by everyone else. Every inch of it was cleared by Gaharo farmers and bricks were made from clay found in the valley below.

The same farmers who helped to build Bukeye from scratch now deliver their cherries to it. To the Long Miles family, Gaharo farmers have become their neighbors and co-workers. They have grown, worked and developed as a community “twese hamwe”; together.

About Long Miles Coffee Project:
"We are a small American family living in Burundi, which is smack dab in the heart of east Africa. We are passionate about producing amazing coffee and caring for the well-being of the coffee farmers who grow it. We weren’t always coffee producers. First, we were a family with a dream.

Our dream was that one day we could facilitate direct and meaningful relationships between coffee roasters and coffee growers by producing great coffee and telling the story of the farmers who grow it. If we could do that, then the local farming community would thrive and the world would gain the gift of great Burundi coffee."

How this works

Simply select how often you want to receive coffee and we’ll ship it to you based on your choice. It's really that easy. You can change or cancel your subscription anytime.

Shipping & Delivery

If you order before noon we will dispatch your package the same business day. Located in the Netherlands? You should receive your order within 24-48 hours. Rural and international deliveries typically take a little longer and should be with you in 2-5 days.

Note: due to COVID-19 restrictions, delivery is expected to take between 1-2 days longer depending on your location.

December: As the holiday season approaches and we all begin to send treats to our loved ones, the couriers get a little run off their feet. The inevitable delays have begun, so to ensure your presents make it under the tree, be sure to order before Friday 20th December.

Shipping Rates

Shipping costs are calculated automatically at checkout. We offer complimentary shipping for orders of €20 and above within the Netherlands. We normally ship via PostNL and often UPS, depending on your location. Deliveries within Amsterdam are powered by the lightning fast delivery service from Foodlogica.

Morning Tracks

Before we turn on the coffee roaster in the morning, there's one thing we just can't go without.. music. We curated several playlists for you to enjoy while sipping. Some are perfect to relax and wind down, others can get a bit loud and noisy from time to time. Some have even been put together by the farmers we collaborate with. Keep on rocking in the free world!
