Burundi is a land with great coffee tradition. It’s high altitude, thousands of hills, volcanic soils, and frequent rains offer ideal conditions for the production of exotic coffee year-round.
Coffee in Burundi is grown in small family-owned farms and cherries are traditionally brought to the nearest coffee washing station. The Kibingo Washing Station handles crops from approximately 3,600 registered growers, each harvesting from an average of 300 trees. The region of Kayanza, where this coffee is from, is in the north of the country near the border of Rwanda.
This crisp acidity coffee offers playful notes of honey, blackberries, black tea and apple.
