Burundi Butegana (12) a full city craft roast coffee
Our Kayanza region of western Burundi coffee offerings are part of a project where a quality premium is paid above the normal "market rate," and this premium is paid directly back to the farmers. Burundi is just south of Rwanda but miles and miles away in the cup. The two countries share much: the same tribes, the same coffee varieties, and a similar history, but the cups are not even related. This is a case of terroir. While Rwandan coffees cup with lovely sugary and lemon citrus notes, the mountains of Burundi produce a deep fig and fruity coffee—almost a Malbec of a cup highlighted by a firm supporting acidity.
Cupping Notes: hints of lemon, blackberry and honey in aroma and cup. A spicy, savory suggestion deepens the cup. Gentle tart acidity; silky mouthfeel. Rich, bittersweet finish.
