Blind Assessment: Brightly acidy and authoritative. Citrus- and floral-toned aroma broadens and deepens in the cup, taking on a tartly sweet mandarin orange-like quality. Intense, flower-toned acidity. The sweet citrus character gently lingers far into the long finish.
Notes: Burundi is a small, landlocked country in Central Africa. Most coffee is grown in the mountains of the north, bordering Rwanda. Benefiting from ideal growing conditions and large plantings of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica, Burundi coffee has an excellent reputation, though it is better known in Europe than in the United States. This Burundi was roasted at PT’s Coffee, where the motto is “without the love, it’s just coffee.” Visit
Who Should Drink It: Not for the timid. Lovers of sweet citrus, flowers and powerful acidity.
