1700 - 1900 MASL
Burundi is among the smallest coffee-producing countries in East Africa, with a population of 10.5 million that is endowed with ideal conditions for coffee production: elevations of 1500 - 2000 m, Arabica Bourbon coffee trees, abundant rainfall, and approximately 800,000 families who cultivate an average of 150-200 coffee trees per farm. Arabica coffee now represents virtually 100% of Burundi’s national production and the bourbon variety grown at high elevations in Burundi is characteristically sweet with bright acidity, big body, floral, citrus and spiced with wild notes.
This coffee is produced by hundreds of smallholder farmers based across the region of Masenga. It has been collected and processed by our Burundi partners Migoti Hill Washing Station.
Farmers of the Masenga region typically cultivate an average of 30 coffee trees per farm and they range in altitude between 1700 and 1900 meters above sea level.
It's a fully washed, community lot. This coffee has been collected and treated as a single lot from the farming community of the Masenga region. It has been collected and processed within a 48-hr period.
Perfect for my aeropress!
Not sure if its the power of suggestion, or a very sensitive pallet, but can really sense the different notes suggested on the bag. Some more than others. A much milder roast this. Sort of the mid day cup.
Lovely complex tastes
Roast Lab Burundi coffee convinces with its fruity scent and sweet taste. The taste varies depending on the degree of grinding. Highly recommend!
Really enjoyed this for an all rounder. Good fruitiness but also has a bit of umph! Really good stuff (as usual!)
