FREE UK DELIVERY ON ALL COFFEE
The Kayanza region, in northern Burundi, borders Rwanda. It is a mountainous area that often reaches an altitude of 2,000 metres. Known also for its tea production, it is here that our partner Salum owns a farm and four washing stations. In this country, where 55% of the Burundian working population lives on coffee production and where 95% of the industry is managed by just 2 players, we decided to opt for a different sourcing method. We have chosen to work with Salum, who is the only independent producer in the country. An entrepreneur, coffee enthusiast, and manager of a well-oiled transport company, he owns his own farm and 4 washing stations. His high-quality work has confirmed that we made the right choice.
Our Kiboko comes from the Kayanza region and it is now 100% traceable, because this year Salum began producing it at his Shembati washing station. This means we get a higher quality coffee at the same price as well as more even roasting. A wonderful way of supporting an independent producer!
The beans are dried more slowly under shade, which allows more aromas to develop. The bouquet holds notes of lemon, red berries, chocolate and almond. In the cup, it has a full body with floral and fruity notes of mandarin and lemon.
