Podcast Episode #21 - Burundi Conversation with Alistair Sequeira - Part 1

Podcast Episode #21 - Burundi Conversation with Alistair Sequeira - Part 1
July 16, 2018

Thompson and Alistair Sequeira talk about coffee and lotsa other stuff in this 2017 conversation in rural Mwakiro, Burundi. Alistair lives with his family in Bujumbura, the capital, and has helped us find good Burundi coffees for several years. He was director of a large coffee export office there before heading off to do his own thing in the coffee sector.

The conversation starts off with Alistair talking about growing up in Kenya and the bias he found in UK boarding schools. Just so you know, there are more than a few F-bombs dropped during this conversation!
