Single Origin (100% Burundi)
In the same tradition as other East African coffees, Burundi coffee has come a long way to become a world contender despite local distress. Your support aids in stabilizing the fragile incomes of thousands of people in this tiny nation.
In a region ripped by civil war it is hard to make a living. Yet Burundians are hard working, diligent people, and have produced an incredible specialty coffee. Your purchase supports their ability to live a bit better while the living is so very hard.
For the home roaster this raw, green coffee will be enjoyed at every level of roast. You will find that every roast intensity has it's own cup distinct profile. You are purchasing a full pound which will typically yield between 13.6 ounces of light roast to 12.25 ounces of dark roast. Darker roasts will have nearly twice the volume of a very light roast. That contributes to the fact that darker roasts have less caffeine plus the the shedding of more pulp during the roasting process. Your green coffee purchase will be packaged in a heat sealed food grade package to keep the coffee's moisture between 13-18%.
