Burundi Bururi BUMOCO

Currently unavailable. The information below is provided only for reference.

This is one of the first arrivals of 2015 Burundi crop, and there will be more to come.  The beans are size A and come from the Bururi region at 4000+ feet altitude. They are packed in a Grain-Pro bag to maintain freshness.

This is a washed process coffee, as are most Burundi beans, and they are best suited as a dark roast.  The lowest you want to go is 10 seconds into the 2nd cracks, and that's where you can taste some peach and brown sugar notes -- but overall the body is thin and the flavor is weak.  There are no defects or off-tastes and I don't mind drinking it -- it's just not particularly inspiring.  (Although, in a french press, it does have more body and enough flavor, and is pretty nice!)  If you take it a little farther in the roast, 20+ seconds into the rolling 2nd cracks, you get a fantastic dark roasted bean.  Big bodied, sweet, and deep flavor.  Beautiful aroma that will wake you up and put you in a good mood.  As espresso, it is sweet and peachy and remarkably smooth.  This bean can't go much darker than this.  It's only an A size and starts to burn if you go much beyond this roast level.

December 2014 arrival in USA.
