KIRIRIMA – BURUNDI

$19.00

A syrupy and flavourful Burundi with heavy sweet and tart qualities.

On average, the farmers of Burundi own less than half a hectare of land, and in addition to coffee, they grow crops like bananas, beans, yams, taro, and cassava. With smaller farm sizes and crop yields, washing stations like Kiririma Cooperative are common when purchasing from this region. The washing station provides production resources for farmers without the financial means to do their own wet or dry milling. The majority of growers deliver their cherries to a facility for sorting, blending, and post-harvest processing to create different offerings.

This is a sweet, flavourful coffee from northern Burundi’s Kayanza province. It’s characteristics lend itself to comparisons with coffees of Rwanda with notes of black cherry and fig.
