Single Origin Small Batch
NEW SMALL BATCH! The follow up to the Burundi Gekanke is also from Burundi. This one comes from an area in Burundi near the Rwanda border, the Kayanza region. This coffee comes from the Gahahe washing station. Gahahe launched in 1989 and takes its name from the igahahe trees that surround the area.
This natural processed, or sun-dried, coffee is dried on raised beds for 3-4 weeks until it is at a 12% moisture content, giving it lots of time to take on the exotic flavors that we love.
In Burundi, there are 650,000 families that rely on coffee for their livelihood and there are exactly zero estates growing large amounts. That means each and every coffee comes from smallholder farmers who work with washings stations like Gahahe to process their coffee. Up until recently, coffee was only sold by SOGESTAL, the groups of washing stations in a region. We're excited about the step forward in traceability by being able to buy specific washing stations.
We love this coffee because of its full body, the intense grape notes, and the lingering sweet finish.
Our roast days are Monday and Thursday.
