Sweet cherry pie in the sky! Fine Burundi coffees are known for their unbridled fruit flavors. This bright cup is brimming with cherries, berries, and plums, with a savory undercurrent of maple to hold it all together. Simply delightful.
The Ubwiza Bw’ikawa cooperative started in 2009 and represents 800 producers. They have made it their mission to oppose discrimination by actively promoting inclusivity in supporting women farmers and marginalized ethnic groups in the region. The coffee is fully washed, hand sorted, and dried on raised beds. Cupping notes: On the nose- Sweet, heady, fragrant berry fusion; maple & cherry forward. Taste- Bright Maraschino cherries, sweet maple, pomegranate, cranberry, & Pinot Noir. Not your typical Burundi. Very unique, lively, medium bodied, with a tart acidity, & delicious, complex finish.
"Good coffee with a little sweetness to it! Interesting to see there is an espresso version as well."
"Lovely chocolate aroma when opening the bag. Good body and nice long finish. Very cozy. RIch and gently fruity, like a cherry chocolate but with nice toasty flavours. This makes a great aeropress cup of coffee."
"Nice cherry and pomegranate notes makes this single origin a winner. "
