Burundi Gitwe 5


Juicy Apple and Floral Tea, Lemon and Stonefruit

Roast: Light
Producer: Multiple Smallholders
Region: Gitwe, Nkonge and Muatana Hills, Heza Washing Station, Kayazana Province
Process: Anaerobic Honey Processed
Variety: Bourbon Landraces


This one-of-a-kind selection features coffee from the Gitwe Hill, or village. Attributable to its anaerobic honey processing, we’re experiencing a deep juiciness with citric apple, stone fruit flavors, and a floral finish. Frankly, we were darn lucky to get our hands on a single bag this year.

This coffee was sourced through our new partnership with Long Miles Coffee Project, which was founded in 2011 by Ben and Christy Carlson. For a decade, they’ve invested heavily in the development of a farmer-driven production model that measurably improves the lives of the Burundian coffee farmers they work with.
