    This is a high-quality roast! There is a strong flavor, with notes of apricot, dark chocolate, and dry walnut-- accompanying a nice swell of acidic sweetness.

    I'd say I struggled with this one a bit as a prosumer barista but there's really a ton of flavor here. I never find Burundian coffee especially easy to work with. It's a cool natural coffee, with a bit of funk and a ton of fruitiness. It's powerfully dark chocolate, citrus zest, and raspberry. I thought it was very good at a lower temperature.

    Cupping Method:Pourover first at high temp (~207) and then lower including 200 and 195F. Best at 195F.

More Details

Roast Level: Light Medium
A Light Medium Roast coffee, sometimes referred to as a "City Roast" or "American Roast," lies between a light and medium roast. This roast level strikes a balance by preserving the coffee bean's unique characteristics while allowing for a moderate development of body and flavor. The beans have a medium brown color, exhibiting a slight sheen of oils, providing a more balanced and nuanced flavor profile. A Light Medium Roast typically highlights the coffee's inherent fruity, floral, or citrus notes, while also providing some of the deeper, richer flavors associated with medium roasts.
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.
