Nestled in Central Africa’s rolling hills, Burundi’s mountainous terrain - reaching up to 8,800 feet at Mount Heha - and equatorial climate are perfect for growing coffee. Burundi, which has one of the lowest per capita incomes in Africa, suffered a series of devastating civil wars in the 1970s and again in the 1990s. As a result, the country remains a largely agricultural society with approximately 90% of the population surviving as subsistence farmers. Many of these farmers also grow coffee for export. Our coffee comes from one of these small, sustainable farms. Wonderfully bold and flavorful, these extraordinary beans are medium roasted to produce a bittersweet chocolate base with clove overtones and just a touch of citrus to close.
