  • About this Coffee: Burundi commonly produces microlots, mainly on the account of each farmer owning an average of less than a single hectare. Smallholders naturally deliver their cherries to centralized depulping and washing stations. This microlot consists of coffees from members of the Nkoronko Cooperative and farmers that live within close proximity of the Nkoronko Washing Station. Contributing producers pick cherries at peak ripeness for daily delivery to the washing station. Upon arrival, producers bring their cherries to a sorting station where the cherries that are underripe, overripe, or defective are removed. For natural processed coffees, the cherries are placed immediately on raised beds after the selection process and dried over the course of three weeks. During this time they are moved and sorted by hand to ensure an even dryness throughout the lot. In the cup, we taste ripe strawberry, floral black tea, and creamy cookie butter.
