Though Buliza is mainly supplied by a farmers cooperative called Ucocaru, this micro-lot was produced by the women of the Burega cooperative. It has been grown exclusively by smallholder women in the area. 

Coffees from Buliza are known for their high sweetness, density and long shelf life. Sorting of the cherries when they are delivered to the CWS is done carefully and we haven't had any issues with potato defect in the past.

Buliza started its operations in 2007 and has grown its capacity ever since. Today, the washing station can produce up 80MT (metric tons) of parchment per season. It can produce both fully washed and natural coffees, always sun-dried on raised beds. Buliza was among the overall winners of Cup of Excellence in 2011. 

All parchment is stored in a cool, dry and ventilated warehouse on pallets according to the lot numbers. The coffee is kept inside polyethene bags of 60kg with the details of the CWS, lot number and quantity to ensure traceability.
