Blind Assessment: Delicate floral and honeyed fruit-like aroma. In the cup, bright-toned acidity and syrupy flavors reminiscent of orange and apricot fruit nectar with continued floral and honeyed complication. Long, almost sugary sweet, flavor-saturated 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 particular Burundi was produced from trees of the Bourbon variety. Roasted at PT's Coffee, where the motto is "without the love, it's just coffee."

Who Should Drink It: Sweet fruit and flowers from a lesser known but distinguished African origin.
