Burundi Rurira single origin Arabica coffee beans originate from the tiny country of Burundi in Africa. These beans are a subsistence crop and are shade grown among other mixed crops. The beans are washed at a central village wet mill and then air dried on over 200 raised beds.
Burundi is one of the poorest countries in Africa and remains an overwhelmingly rural society. It is a land locked country bordered by Rwanda, Tanzania and the Republic of Congo. Frequently “war torn”, the coffee production is intermittent at best.
This batch is from 2015/2016 and there has been no commercial crops since so when this stock is gone…no more until?
The roast beans taste of bright berries, dark chocolate and show complex flavours with great depth.
