Burundi Kirundo Coffee

Nestled in the Great Lakes region of East Africa, just south of Rwanda and beside the DRC and Tanzania, Burundi shares many of the incredible coffee characteristics of its neighbours but with its own unique qualities. The red Bourbon cultivar offers the signature sweet apple-like quality that Bourbon is known for, but this lot also adds a complementary vibrant citrus acidity and a soft caramel sweetness. Like many lots from Burundi, this one is grown by small family-run farms and then sold to a mill to be processed before export.

CafeX was started as a small private mill processing coffee cherries from local producers. This lot was prepared using the washed method, the most common processing in Burundi, and is a great representation of the method. The coffee cherry is removed using a de-pulper and then submerged in water to ferment before being dried in the sun. Washed coffees tend to be sweet and round, and the Kirundo creates a crowd pleasing profile that works extremely well as a filter or espresso.

  • Flavours: Caramel Apple, Lemon, Black Tea.
  • Origin: Gashoho
  • Varietal: Red Bourbon
  • Process: Washed
  • Altitude: 1450 - 1600 masl
