Poverty-stricken Country Burundi?

Coffee Depot of Africa

Due to it's equatorial climate and not enough rain in farming areas, Burundi's land and soil are not rich and fertile enough to grow various kinds of agricultural crops. Their main food crops are bananas, sweet potatoes, peas and beans. Cassava crops are cultivated and grown in areas near the shores and lakes. Coffee is their major crop for export. Most of the earning of the country comes from exporting coffees.
