Burundi isn't new to coffee production. The Belgians originally planted coffee here in the 1960s and the practise in this landlocked country has continued to this day. The country invests a great deal in its coffee production and with World Bank funding it has been able to build around 140 washing stations. As a result of continuing privatisation, the Burundi people themselves are getting a piece of the industry with 800,000 families owning their own lots.


Our Burundi is processed in the Gihere washing station. Located in the Kayanza region, this washing station is among the most well-recognized producers of speciality coffee in Burundi. Built in 2008, Gihere offers a premium to producers whose coffees place in competitions, motivating farmers to meticulous harvesting and agricultural practices. The station buys and processes coffee cherry from 300 families with plots of 10-50 trees on average, though a handful have more than 100. Equipped with 450 drying beds, six-disc McKinnon pulping machines and two pressers it's definitely a well-oiled operation.

It's a good one

I really like this one. It would be nice to have to lighter roast available as well in a larger bag. Maybe if there was a choice of roast in the options.
Interesting

The description of this coffee is very accurate. I found it to be best in a Turkish press/moka pot, compared to a french press/cafetiere, since the citrusy flavours are more present. The coffee is surprisingly acidic and not at all bitter for a dark roast.
Sadly, as a dark roast lover this means that this coffee is not actually what I was looking for. Although I appreciated the taste, I generally like bitter, chocolaty and earthy flavours compared to fruity ones. Objectively though, this is one of the best coffees I've had.
