Roast Color: Medium
This new crop of coffee from Burundi brews a very different cup from the Ethiopian Yirgacheffe we shared last week.
It begins with a nose full of baking chocolate. The first sip reveals a bright, medium bodied cup with a dry earthiness. The flavor of cacao nibs comes out with a hint of ginger, pecans and leather. The finish lingers with the sweetness of golden raisins.

Our Burundi Dukorere Ikawa is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Dukorere Ikawa Cooperative, which is located within the Bururi Province, Burundi. The Dukorere Ikawa Cooperative has 300 members. On average, each producer cultivates 400 coffee trees. The Dukorere Ikawa Cooperative washing station utilizes water and hydro-power that comes from a pristine source located nearby in the Bururi Forest Preserve, which includes a magnificent waterfall. The Dukorere Ikawa Cooperative also has a water treatment facility to ensure that water leaves the wash station in the same pristine condition.
