This beautiful coffee is comprised from various smallholder farmers who deliver their hand-picked harvest to the Mubuga washing station, situated around 1,500 MASL in Ngozi.

Despite the ubiquity of coffee growing in Burundi, each smallholder owns a relatively small amount of trees (around 200 on average) usually in their backyards. Each tree yields about 1.5kg of cherry so the average producer can expect to sell about 200-300kg of coffee cherry annually.

The natural coffee is floral and sweet with an array of fruit notes including citrus & berries. Most coffee trees in Burundi are of the Red Bourbon varietal. Because of the increasingly small size of coffee plantings, ageing rootstock is a very big issue in Burundi. Many farmers have trees that are over 50 years old.

 

We hope you enjoy discovering the rare intricacies of this coffee as much as we have. Enjoy!
