We are so excited to get this bean in and start roasting it. Our supplier, Coffee Shrub in San Francisco, shared some samples with us at the Specialty Coffee Association EXPO earlier this month. We roasted it to city + (light) and found it to be simply AMAZING. The dry aroma is intense! The front end of this roast is crisp and immediately comes across as berries. As it cools, it hints at dark chocolate and brown sugar.  Grown at 2000 meters above sea level (about 6500 feet), this is a very high-elevation bean, maturing slowly, leading to a complex flavor profile. We can't wait to hear your brewing stories! ​ Burundi is one of the smallest countries in Africa, bordered by Rwanda to the north, Tanzania to the east and south, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west. Burundi gained independence from Belgium in 1962. ​ Burundi's economy relies heavily on agriculture, with the majority of the population engaged in subsistence farming. Coffee is one of its main cash crops. Burundi's coffee is grown in high-altitude regions with rich volcanic soil and favorable climate conditions, including ample rainfall and plenty of sunshine. These conditions contribute to the development of coffee beans with complex flavors and a desirable acidity.
