This fully washed lot comes from 124 female smallholder farmers located on Murambi Hill. They sell their cherries to be processed at the Migoti Hill washing station, overlooking the great Lake Tanganyika.
We sourced this coffee through Omwani, who have been working in partnership with Burundi-based Migoti Coffee Company and their processing stations to source some of the best coffee across all of Burundi.
With peace in the country, after a long period of civil war, and a state-of-the-art coffee washing station, the local community has new-found hope for the future, and farmers are again investing in their coffee farms.
Enjoy apple acidity, soft, caramel sweetness, and a lightly creamy mouthfeel.
Roaster's Notes Murambi Hill Women's Lot 24
Migoti have knocked it out of the park again with this one. The sweetness we've come to expect from Burundi is balanced so well against the crisp, apple acidity, that this has become my go-to coffee for my morning pour-over.
Burundi’s lush, mountainous geography and favourable soils and climate are well suited to coffee agriculture.
A number of varieties, including Bourbon, Jackson and Mibrizi are harvested between April and July. Farming is carried out entirely by smallholders, centred around 160 washing stations.
With Burundi being so small, there is little to distinguish coffees grown in each of the different coffee growing areas, but coffee from Burundi is typically juicy and bursting with flavours of fruit and berries.
