Podcast Episode #22 - Burundi Conversation with Alistair Sequeira - Part 2
July 23, 2018

Thompson and Alistair Sequeira talk about coffee and lotsa other stuff in this 2017 conversation in rural Mwakiro, Burundi. The conversation starts off with Alistair explaining how he transitioned his career in mechanical engineering to the coffee industry.

Alistair lives with his family in Bujumbura, the capital of Burundi 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.

Just so you know, there are more than a few F-bombs dropped during this conversation!
