Why You'll Love It:
An immaculately clean naturally-processed coffee from the Great Lakes region of East Africa, this full-bodied offering boasts a vibrant sweetness with intense fruit-forward acidity. An unforgettable experience in celebration of the continent that coffee calls home.
Story of the Bean:
The Nile River pours forth from its source in the Kayanza region of Burundi. From there it will travel across desert, grassland, and forest to the Mediterranean sea over 4000 miles away. The same rain that falls on the mountains of Kayanza to birth this river also nourish the cherries producing this incredibly dynamic coffee.
From the headwaters of Africa's greatest river, Kayanza is the product of thousands of producers and 5 washing stations across the Kayanza Province region. As a result of precise natural processing, this coffee exhibits the highest intensity of fruit characteristics. The result marks a new level of quality in coffees from Burundi, producing a rich and rare cup.
This is great coffee.
Good not great
I prefer a darker roast, and a little more of a robust flavor. But it is quite good.
Burundi- Colombe is doing this right
Such a solid coffee. Light, fresh, so tasty. I’m from a roaster in Arizona and had to write home about it. Thanks!
An absolute favorite
This is truly a favorite in our household. I wish it was available year round.
Had the Burundi this morning at the cafe. Excellent coffee. Very flavorful. Excellent service.
