Burundi coffee has only been back on the market for about 10 years since their civil war ended. Each year the quality has been improving. Buhorwa is the name of the washing mill that was one of the first to be privatized. They separate lots by quality and this lot is one their good ones. The coffee is imported through Crop to Cup who are hands on with helping the farmers produce good coffee year after year.
This is a washed process coffee and works at a variety of roast levels. If you roast it light -- 30 seconds past the end of the 1st cracks -- you have a clean, bright, sweet coffee with cantaloupe and plenty of other flavors to think about. If you take it a little farther -- maybe 20 seconds shy of 2nd cracks beginning -- it really smooths out, still has nice sweetness, and you start getting some chocolate chip cookie flavor with lemon icing. Dark roast, well into the 2nd cracks you have a big bodied, sweet, deep flavored French Roast. Beautiful aroma that will wake you up and put you in a good mood. As espresso, it is creamy smooth with a carrot cake flavor.
