Blind Assessment: Balanced, richly sweet-tart. Lychee, orange zest, amber oil, cocoa nib, narcissus-like flowers in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with poised acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. The floral-toned finish centers around amber and orange zest suggestions.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers entirely from the Bourbon variety of Arabica and processed at the Buhorwa Washing Station. Benefiting from ideal growing conditions and large plantings of Bourbon and related heirloom varieties of Arabica, Burundi coffee has developed a growing following among North American roasters and enthusiasts. Big Shoulders Coffee is a Chicago artisan roaster that emphasizes a fresh-roasted, no-nonsense approach to fine coffee. Visit www.bigshoulderscoffee.com or call 312-846-1439 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A delicately perfumed, floral-toned Burundi with a throughline of resiny amber-like notes.
