We are proud to offer this limited edition coffee bean from Burundi. This particular Burundi bean comes from the Heza Washing Station located in a remote part of Burundi, sitting at approximately 2,000 feet elevation in the Kayanza Province. Heza is primarily surrounded by coffee farmers and in the local language of Kirundi, it means “beautiful place.”
This washed coffee is first dry fermented for around twelve hours and then wet fermented using fresh natural spring water for up to twenty-four hours. From there the coffee is rinsed and then dried on raised beds. During the drying period, a rigorous process of removing defective beans occurs multiple times over the twenty-day period as it slowly dries to the moisture of 10.5%.
This particular coffee is a Peaberry. Peaberries are not common and are bean mutations that cause a cherry to produce just one bean. These Peaberries are small and shaped like footballs. Prized for their rich flavor, with tasting notes that include plum and citrus, we are excited to offer this unique coffee to you while supplies last!
This is a washed whole bean coffee. Ground options available.
