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.

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.

Sourced from the Kinyovu washing station near the province Kayanza, Burundi, this lot was produced by some of the Burundi chapter women from the International Women’s Coffee Association, the first African chapter of IWCA to become a legally recognised entity.

The Burundi chapter of the IWCA began with a group of eight women representing each of Burundi's coffee growing regions, transportation, exportation and coffee quality. The IWCA provides access to business opportunities in the coffee industry, as well as social, economic and political empowerment for women in coffee communities around the world - we're extremely proud to be stocking this awesome coffee!
