Burundi is becoming a very popular coffee origin for South African speciality coffee drinkers, and this is in no small part thanks to The Long Miles Coffee Project, a venture set up by the Carlson family to help Burundian farmers produce better quality coffee and get it to market at favourable prices. This new release from The Portland Project is another result of the project's efforts!

The coffee's roast profile should lend itself to espresso extractions, as it is quite well developed. You may find some caramel sweetness and some raisiny notes in the cup. Be wary of over extraction in manual brews, but you may find that a pour-over can accent some of its more subtle, acidic notes.
