Taste

This deliciously citrusy coffee is the Cinderella of the African coffee world, a true hidden gem. In this bundle you get two 150g bags of Burundi, one lightly roasted and one dark roasted. It is the perfect way to compare how a taste profile can change with a difference of just a few degrees of roasting temperature. The light roast brings out truly floral flavours, with a background reminiscent of lemons and garden peas. Whereas the darker of the two is slightly more complex with orange citrusy notes going into a smoother chocolatey finish. Quite a unique coffee amongst other fruitier Africans.



Facts


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.

Reviews

Great educational idea! (And great coffee!)
By
It is very interesting to compare differences between roast states of a same coffee bean. Both are really delicious (I got a thrill of delight drinking it after a week of capsules espresso!). I recommend it.
Good mix
By
The dark roast was exceptional, full flavoured and crisp. I personally did not like the light, but i like a strong dark roast.
If the dark came out on its own id get it regularly.
