ABOUT THE COFFEE:
New 2017/18 crop. Complex as can be, this is a cup that screams African.
Burundi Buzira-Muruta (Lot 31) fully washed beans are sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Coffee Processing Company (CPC), which was established in 2010 by Salum Ramadhan who was born and raised in the Kayanza province, Burundi. Salum operates four washing stations in Kayanza. All four stations reflect Salum’s passion for coffee and his commitment to his community. Beans are meticulously separated and fully traceable to harvest date and washing station. Each lot is classified through a strict protocol that includes hand sorting and floating the cherry. Depulped coffee undergoes a three-part fermentation process, 16 hours of dry fermentation, then another 14 hours of fermentation with water, and then washed and soaked in fresh water for 10 hours.
Salum pays well above the government minimum for cherry and pays farmers extra to sort cherry. He also encourages the farmers to keep and process unused cherry for personal consumption or to sell in the local market. Salum has a nursery program to distribute seedlings to farmers. He has also been paying to build additional classrooms to alleviate problems with overcrowding in the schools.
This coffee is not overly fruity, just some small hints in the aftertaste. Medium bodied and very chocolaty, it has some very complex herbal/floral/fruit tones balancing the cup. Not as wild as the Congo offerings but much more diverse than most Kenyan coffees.
Medium roast, so you won’t get a bitter taste, but still has a lot of flavor depth- Chocolatey.
Sells all and everything African. Bringing Africa to the global market.
