Burundi Kinyovu, Rango, Kayanza

We’re stoked to have this coffee back for a second year, even though it’s got a slightly different name. It’s just as good, if not better!

Burundi is a small, landlocked country, neighbouring Rwanda, Tanzania, and the DRC, where coffee is a hugely important part of the economy. In such a poor nation (Burundi’s GDP is one of the lowest in Africa), specialty coffee exports are a vital source of income, and the potential of the coffee-growing areas are significant. 

There’s a similarity in terrain to neighbouring Rwanda, but the logistical challenges are just as difficult, albeit with a less well-developed export system. The Kinyovu mill, located just outside the town of Rango, is supplied by around 3,800 smallholder farmers, with directly, or via one of several collection points set up in the local area. The cherries are processed via the fully washed method, and dried on raised beds. After the dry mill, they then face a week’s journey by road, across three countries, before they reach the port to be loaded on its onward journey to your cup.

Ed & Chris have been tasting coffees from Burundi for the last 10 years, and we’re so pleased to showcase this beautiful coffee from the Kayanza region, for the second year. This years offering is stuffed full of red apple juiciness, with a sticky raisin sweetness. The finish makes us think of meringues – sweet, soft and moreish. We’d recommend filter or aeropress for this one, but it’ll make a cracker of an espresso if you’re so inclined.
