Burundi Gakenke Honey Coffee
We’ve seen a huge social and economic shift in Burundi over the years, which has generated many improvements to the production of high-quality coffee in the country.
When we approached the Gakenke Washing Station last year, we were amazed to hear of the incredible coffee quality in the area and couldn’t wait to showcase not one, but three in our roster for 2022.

The honey process involves depulping and drying coffee cherries in the sun, without passing them through water. This ensures there is still some mucilage attached to the coffee cherry, which translates to the increased fruitful notes in this coffee. Showcasing sticky blackberry jam and delicate assam tea flavours, with a rich, syrupy body.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
