Blind Assessment: Sweet, lively, juicy. Cane sugar, honeysuckle, white grape, hazelnut, a hint of tapioca in aroma and cup. Bright, resonant acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a long, sweet-toned finish.
Notes: Burundi is a small, landlocked country in the Great Lakes region of 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 particular Burundi was processed by the Gitika washing station. Revel Coffee is a micro-roaster located in Billings, Montana.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy coffees sweet and pure enough to achieve completeness in a very light roasting style.
