Tastes Like: Fig, Apple, Amaretto, Maple Syrup

Some origins hold a special place in our hearts. Sometimes it is because you've visited and seen the beauty of a mountains and people. Sometimes it is because the coffee tastes beautiful year after year. In the case of Burundi, we've never been, but found the quality to be outstanding year after year.    

This lot comes from Therence Nduwayezu. 2019 marked the year of big changes for Therence and Gatukuza. It was the first year they produced day lots, as opposed to bulk lots that lacked delivery traceability. It was also the first year they cupped through all the coffee they produced. These changes obviously paid off as it also happened to be the first year their fully washed coffee won first place at Burundi’s annual Cup Of Excellence competition!

600 farmers from 8 neighboring hills deliver the cherries to Gatukuza washing station. Therence and his team also mapped out the regions that are far from the washing station or don’t have access to any nearby washing station, creating 112 transit centers - cherry collection and quality check points set up on the coffee hills that shorten the distance farmers have to travel to deliver their cherries. More than 10,000 farmers from 9 communes delivered cherry to these transit centers this season.
