The region of Kayanza is suited to grow some of the best coffee in Burundi.  It is surrounded by the Ruvubu National Forest, has freshwater lakes, and is close enough to the capital city to have access to infrastructure and technological advances. 

This is a washed process coffee, processed at the Nemba mill. It was sorted out as a microlot and consists of only Red Bourbon varietal beans. 

If we roast it just slightly shy of the 2nd cracks we get a most intriguing flavor profile of sweet carrots, broth, stewed vegetables, and chocolate. And while this isn't something I want to drink every day, I do like this coffee. I've been brewing it for multiple people showing it off because its so different, and not in a bad way. Also I should note I really am only getting these flavors in a french press immersion brew. If you run the coffee through a paper filter it tastes relatively normal.

Dark roast: 40 seconds into rolling 2nd cracks, deep french roast: Carrot cake with burnt edges and chocolate. Still surprisingly good.

This coffee isn't going to be for everyone, but we got one bag of it just for the people who want to try it.

US Arrival: January 2024
