With both natural processed coffee and Burundi coffee taking on a huge buzz in the specialty coffee industry, we knew we wanted to find a natural Burundi that suited our style. Suffice to say, this gem from the Kibingo Washing Station did it for us. With a deep, dark berry sweetness, tropical acidity and a clean finish, this coffee was a no-brainer to buy for our customers. It is clear that the producers in this region are focused on improving how they grow, sort and process coffee and we hope to be able to bring this coffee back for years to come!
