RED CITRUS / RIPE BERRIES / RHUBARB
The Kayanza region is located in northern Burundi, near the border with Rwanda. Here is the Gahahe coffee washing station, where 1250 local coffee farmers, with an average of 250 coffee trees per family, leave their freshly picked coffee berries for fermentation and sorting. Here are the perfect conditions for growing exceptional coffee; high altitude (1800 meters), a red bourbon variety, volcanic soils and plenty of rain. Add a careful fermentation and sorting to the washing station, and there is the answer to why Gahahe has won lots of coffee competitions. In character, the coffee has an explosive acidity, with a sweet taste of ripe berries and an exceptionally long and well-developed aftertaste. We could not be more proud of our first coffee from Burundi.
