Created from various bourbon cultivars and shade grown in volcano soil this coffee is hitting us with a super sweet and well-structured cup. Notes of rum rasin, earl grey, and caramel. We could imagine with a warm scone.

    A special coffee. I've sampled a raft of coffees from Burundi in the past few weeks, and this is far and away the best one. On the grind, there is distinct nose of rum raisin ice cream with chocolate sprinkles. It's smoothness and balance in the cup is outstanding. Lots and lots of natural sweetness. It's a hybrid black tea and milk chocolate platform with a distinct caramel. It finishes with a bit of key lime. What a wonderful cup of coffee.

More Details

Roast Level: Light
Light roast coffee is a delicately roasted coffee that retains more of the beans' natural flavors and characteristics. Light-roasted coffees have bright acidity, complex fruit, and floral notes. Light roast coffee does not have less caffeine than darker roasts because caffeine levels remain stable during roasting.
Bean Source Country: Burundi
Burundi is a small landlocked East African nation. Grown predominantly on the high-altitude slopes of the country's mountainous regions, Burundi coffee benefits from rich volcanic soils and favorable climate conditions, which impart a vibrant acidity and pronounced fruitiness to the beans. Burundian coffee often has nuanced notes of red fruit, such as cherry, currant, and raspberry, while lending it a delicate floral undertone. This harmonious blend of flavors is further complemented by a medium body, crisp citrus brightness, and a lingering sweet finish, making Burundian coffee a sought-after (and sometimes hard-to-find) treasure in specialty coffees.
