Roaster's Notes

This coffee unfolds with the refreshing crispness of red apple, followed by the vibrant burst of orange, all wrapped up in the indulgent finish of caramel.


Burundi is among the smallest coffee-producing countries in East Africa, with a population of 10.5 million that is endowed with ideal conditions for coffee production: elevations of 1500 - 2000 m, Arabica Bourbon coffee trees, abundant rainfall, and approximately 800,000 families who cultivate an average of 150-200 coffee trees per farm.

Arabica coffee now represents virtually 100% of Burundi's national production and the bourbon variety grown at high elevations in Burundi is characteristically "sweet with bright acidity, big body, floral, citrus and spiced with wild notes." Over the past 25 years, coffee production in Burundi has averaged 26,700 tons per year.
