Burundi Rubanda – Ntobo Farmer Group
Medium Roast

This Burundi Rubanda from the Rubanda Washing station in the Mutambu region of Bujumbura province, is an example of the excellent coffees they produce. The Ntobo Farmers group consist of around 400 members, from the surrounding hillside delivering coffee in their groups to be processed, wet milled, fermented and conditioned prior to dry milling. There are up to 10,000 farmers in the region in total delivering coffee from their small holdings (typically less than 1 hectare in size, with around 200 active producing trees on each one)

The private mill is managed by a local organization – Risca SA, who’s attention to detail and quality is showing results. They have been managing the private mill since 2010. Hand sorting of collected and delivered cherries is crucial prior to washing (and the 2-stage fermentation) to ensure only the ripest cherries are processed.

The Republic of Burundi is a tiny landlocked East African country, nestled between Tanzania to the East, Democratic Republic of Congo to the West and Rwanda to the north. It has been inhabited for over 500 years by two main tribal groups, and ruled as a kingdom before being colonised by Germany. Post World War I Belgium took control of the small nation before handing it independence in 1952 – various bouts of political unrest plagued Burundi for much of the 20th century. Coffee and Tea represent 90% of foreign exchange earnings.

This coffee is a fully washed coffee of the bourbon/kent varietal.

Rory’s Tasting Notes:

Complex and sweet, well balanced and perfect for espresso, and pour over. Aromas of sugar syrup, toffee and honey break away to reveal sugar cane sweetness, pulped raisin sweetness and caramel flavour. Gentle yet crisp acidity, exude hints of lemon and orange zest.
