    A pleasant and clean characteristic Burundi. I get pomegranate right off the bat, then a very silky/smooth texture and black tea mid-palate. It's maybe a little glycerine/simple syrup in terms of sweetness. Very, very clean.

    It has a citrus/tangerine finish.

    Cupping Method:I had this at Wayward Coffee in Dallas, TX, recommended by the barista.

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.
Bean Source Region: Kayanza
The Kayanza region in Burundi is one of the prime coffee-growing areas in the country, situated at elevations ranging from 1,700 to 2,200 meters above sea level. This region enjoys a temperate tropical highland climate, characterized by well-distributed rainfall and moderate temperatures, providing ideal conditions for cultivating Arabica coffee beans. The area's fertile volcanic soil, enriched with essential nutrients, contributes to the unique flavor profile of Kayanza coffee, which is often described as bright and complex, featuring floral and fruity notes along with a full-bodied richness. Smallholder farmers dominate the landscape, often working collectively in cooperatives to improve production quality and sustainability. The coffees from this region have increasingly gained international acclaim, participating and excelling in various specialty coffee competitions.
