To say that this is a stunning African coffee might be selling it short. It's not just delicious, but also a wonderful example of the quality of coffee coming from the Long Miles Coffee Project - a venture set up by an American family who fell in love with Burundi on their travels and decided to build a washing station to help reward local farmers for their labours while also improving quality.

This coffee demonstrates that Burundi is rapidly becoming one of the important producing-countries in Africa and also offers a special treat in the fact that it's natural-processed - something less common for coffees from that country. It is actually dried over a period of 20-30 days in the cherry, while being regularly hand-tossed to avoid spoilage.

Perfectly roasted by Quaffee, we really struggled to find a brew method in which this coffee didn't speak to us. It had so many flavours to offer up and enjoy including citrus, tart raspberry, stone fruit & even a molasses finish in some brew methods. If you're a manual brewer of any type, you absolutely must try this coffee!

Roaster's notes 

  • Taste profile: A very complex coffee with pomegranate and raspberry, with a sweet molasses after taste
  • Roast used: Coffee is allow to turn naturally then accelerated into first crack where development is extended a little (not too much) through first crack when it is dropped
