Burundi is a landlocked country in Africa, about the size of Maryland. They are recovering from a civil war from 1993-2006 where 300,000 people died and no coffee was exported. Now just a decade later, issues of corruption, ethnic inequality, poverty, and unemployment are threatening to start civil war again.
But from the farmers trying to make a living, trying to find hope and beauty in the chaos, emerges this fantastic coffee with undertones of brown sugar and slight orange, caramel, and butter. The coffee was processed at the Ikawa Nziza mill, which roughly translates in English as "Coffee Beautiful"
Make a mug and enjoy a feeling of hope and resolution.
