Deep in the heart of Africa, on the shores of Lake Tanganyika lies a small country with only half a million inhabitants than the Czech Republic. The country where coffee production, as we know it today, did not develop until the 21st century. But don't be fooled, this is a complex coffee, so typical of nearby Kenya and as balanced as the best products in Colombia.

The process of growing and processing coffee in Burundi is one big challenge, from the beginning to the end of each cycle. harvest. The country ranks all the way of Africa's GDP, and in recent years the political problems of the end of the last century have resonated. Another complication on the grain journey to the final consumer is the transport of coffee from a country that does not have access to the sea to a port from one of the three surrounding countries with access to the sea, which often takes up to a week and takes place by truck.

Despite all the similarities with neighboring Rwanda, both in terms of cultivated varieties, processing, cultivation methods, or the history of both countries, it is a completely different product, which is literally full of acidity and taste profiles are famous for their complexity.
