Coffee from Burundi this year has been incredibly good. Here at Still Vibrato we're proud to offer you this one from Kayanza, in the northern part of the country, from a mill named Gahahe.
Gahahe is a vibrant one, with extreme amounts of character. We think it tastes like a warm spicy cobbler, or maybe refreshing like a mandarin black licorice shakerato. Either way, we think you'll love it because we really do and we have high hopes that you will.
A little about 'Gahahe', it's the name of a coffee cherry collection site (aka washing station) for roughly 600 farmers in Kayanza. Farmers in this area grow mostly older 'bourbon' types, the original coffee cultivar introduced to the area in the 1930s by monks traveling from the island of Reunion (formerly know as Bourbon Island). Gahahe sits at just over 1800 meters above sea level and was built in the 1980s, a time when the world bank was investing heavily in the Burundi's coffee sector.
So now, thanks to a handful of monks and the World Bank, we have this amazingly gorgeous coffee that tastes otherworldly and good. Try some!
