Burundi Ruvumu Natural

  • Burundi is a little African nation hiding between Rwanda and Tanzania, and it’s home to over six hundred thousand coffee- producing families. Coffee production began here in the 1930s under Belgium’s colonization, continued into Burundi’s independence in 1962, and then took a hit during the ten-year civil war that began in 1993. This coffee is from the Muruta Commune, which is in a fertile land named by Burundi’s King Mwezi II in the last half of the 1800s, who deemed the area “superior” for its abundance of honey, cattle, and sorghum. The coffee is a departure from the country’s tradition for producing washed coffees. And I deem it superior for its rich, complex aromatics and sweet, lingering finish. (photo courtesy of Mercanta)
