During the months of February through July, we take a break from Kenya, and offer in it's place a sweet and lively coffee from the small East African country of Burundi. This year's lot was grown by the community of small farmers  known as Cumba of the Tangara commune in  Ngozi province. For those of you who have never had a coffee from this emerging coffee producing country before, you're in for a treat. I often describe the cup profile of Burundi to be Kenyan-like in overall flavor, but its as if you turned down the intensity of acidity a bit, and cranked up the sweetness. In the cup look for notes of medjool dates, raisin, fig, ruby red grapefruit, and gingersnap cookie in the finish.

Don't own a grinder? Don't own a good grinder? Not a problem, let us expertly grind the coffee for you depending on the method with which you brew. We roast, grind and package your coffee to order, so it gets to you just a few days after roasting. We do recommend to consume pre-ground coffee within 2 weeks after opening to experience maximum freshness of flavor.
