Description

This coffee is currently on pre-order and will be available to ship in mid-August 2023.

Multiple fruity notes punch through in this bright and juicy fully washed coffee from Burundi.

Kibingo washing station is located in the Kayanza commune in northern Burundi.

The station itself sits at 1,893 meters above sea level.

The altitude of the farms on the neighbouring hills that supply the washing station varies between 1,700 to 1,900 meters above sea level.

Kibingo serves 3,515 registered coffee growers who are spread over 18 hills in the area.

All producers registered at a Greenco washing station are organized into groups of 30 people, headed by a farm leader.

This leader acts as a spokesman to facilitate communication and organization with the washing station.

During the harvest season, all coffee is selectively handpicked.

Most families only have 200 to 250 trees, and harvesting is done almost entirely by the family.

After sorting, cherries are pulped within 6 hours of delivery.

The machine can process up to 3 tons of cherries per hour.

During pulping, cherries are separated in to high- and low-grade by density

Coffee is then fermented in water from a nearby stream for 10 to 12 hours.

The station workers trample the parchment for 30 minutes in the fermentation tank.

This trampling process helps to remove mucilage from the parchment.

Following fermentation, coffee is run through washing and grading canals.

Then, it’s dried on raised beds.

Look for tastes of Lychee, Red Currant, Honey, and Pear.
