This coffee is produced in the Muruta commune in Buyenzi, Kayanza. The washing station serves around 3000 smallholder producers, who typically own less than a half-hectare of land. These smallholders grow other crops on their land including bananas, beans, yams, and taro; for sale and home use.
Due to the smaller size and yield of these farms, Cafe Imports primarily buys coffee from these washing stations in Burundi, as most producers do not have the space nor financial means to perform their own milling.
Why We Like This Coffee
This coffee bursts with complexity and liveliness. It's juicy and floral with a bright tea-like body. It finishes like an Italian apéritif. Above all, the balance of flavors makes this coffee so interesting, we couldn't pass it up.
What You Can Expect
Expect a lighter-bodied coffee with a lot of character. Like other coffees from East Africa, this has a bright and vibrant acidity. Enjoy notes of orange juice, vanilla bean, and dried cherries while drinking this coffee.
