Dry, crisply juicy. Tart berry, cocoaish nut, peach, lavender-like flowers in aroma and cup. Brisk acidity; light, silky mouthfeel. Long, dry finish.
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 Bourbon and related heirloom varieties of Arabica, Burundi coffee has an excellent reputation and a growing following among North American specialty roasters.
