    On the dry aroma its quite layered and complex. Theres a lovely familiar cinder toffee note off the beans when you open the bag then from the grounds theres Brown Sugar, Apricot, Milk Chocolate and Caramel at the break.

    The flavour is excellent. Lots more brown sugar sweetness and stone fruit, a hint of
    apple pie, some raisin, maybe blood orange acidity, citrus and a black tea note, its very, very clean, bright, malic, and juicy, very satisfying. Plenty of body and very well balanced.

    Its quite an archetypal coffee in that its much like lots of other washed Burundian Coffees (and washed Rwandan coffees for that matter) that Ive cupped, but you dont often get this level of clarity, aromatics, structure and complex sweetness.

    A very fine example of washed Burundian Bourbon.

More Details

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.
