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 Mahonda 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 carrot cake and chocolate. It is absolutely delicious. I've been brewing it for multiple people showing it off because its so good. 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.

Getting coffee out of Africa has been frustrating this year, but somehow Burundi is knocking it out of the park.
