The Background

Burundi coffee has a respectable reputation. Perhaps not as esteemed as the likes of Ethiopia, Kenya, but well respected none the less! Speaking of being respectable, Mt. Whitney Coffee Roasters goes above and beyond in this department. ALL, yes you read that correctly, ALL profits go to the Father's Heart International Foundation. This charity focuses on helping African children that are in need. Burundi is a very mountainous country, and their beans benefit from growth at high altitudes. Coffee from Burundi makes a big impression, even among all of the other renowned coffee producing countries of Africa.

What makes Burundi Kavugangoma Coffee special?

Burundi coffee is a a must try if you're touring the coffee of Africa. Coffee from Burundi shares some aspects with coffee from Rwanda. This is logical enough, as the two countries share a border. The signature brown sugar toned sweetness of this coffee growing region is present in full force here! This flavor profile is very well developed due to the strictly high grown nature of Burundi beans. Sweet and sour notes of tamarind are balanced with dark chocolate and a wine-toned acidity. The bright bite fades into the background for a nice clean and sweet finish. If you enjoy African coffee, do NOT sleep on Burundi coffee!
