Creamy with notes of grape and blueberry. This naturally processed Burundi hales from the Nemba Central Washing Station in the province of Kayanza and has become a customer favorite.
The Kayanza province is in the northern part of Burundi, close to the border of Rwanda, located at an altitude of more than 1700m. Kayanza has the reputation of being one of the best coffee producing regions in Burundi. It is also known for being the water source of the Nile River. The Nemba Central Washing Station is one of many in the region. They collect cherries from over 2,600 local coffee farmers spread over the fifteen neighboring hills. The natural processing of this coffee takes a long time and constant supervision. This is what brings out the thick syrupy body and imparts the natural fruit flavors already present in the cherries.
