We’re having tangerine dreams with this lovely cup from Heza washing station, which means “beautiful place”. This roast is light but substantial, with a body like black tea and a twist of ripe, sugary tangerine. One sip, and you’ll be in your own beautiful place.
This is one of the beautiful hills of Heza washing station where farming communities grow their coffee between banana trees and lush tea plantations. Upwards of 1,876 farmers deliver coffee cherries to Heza washing station every year. Heza is the second washing station built by Ben and Kristy Carlson of the Long Miles Project. Nkonge Hill is a stunning example of the quality of Burundi Coffee and the dedication to the local land. Notes of black tea, tangerine acidity, sweet, lingering finish.
"Loved it. Black tea really came through. Not as much on the tangerine. Would definitely have again. (chemex)"
"I liked this one a lot. It had some oddly delicious flavors of citrus tart, definite black tea flavor, which often isn't my favorite but it really worked with this one. Great bold flavor, not mellow at all, but seriously a good cup of coffee."
"A little acidic for my liking but still a great blend. If you are into citrus notes you will most likely enjoy this blend."
"Not my favorite. It is really light and floral. Not bad at all but way too bland. "
"A light, lemony-tea sipper great for any time of day. It's an easy drinker with character!"
"At first, there is an interesting citrusy sweet tartness that grabs the tip of your tongue. Afterwards, the black tea flavor comes alive. It has a very subtle aroma. (Pour-over)"
"Delicious as a cold brew! Easy sipping all day long! Love the black tea and orange. "
"My first coffee from Stamp Act. Would like to try more before I can get a good idea of the roaster. This was my least favorite in my month's sampler. Decent but nothing stood out. "
"My first sip of this was truly amazing. I thought FOR SURE that this was going to be my favorite out of my samples. I'm not a tea drinker at all, so I was a little hesitant, but it was AMAZING at first. Then the tangerine flavors hit me like Negan's Lucille. The tangerine makes it taste medicinal."
