While washing stations in Burundi produce bright and fruity naturals, there are only a small quantity of Naturals produced at each station each year. Inzovu – named after the Kirundi word for the wise elephant. Despite the fact that Burundi has long been overlooked in comparison to its neighboring East African specialty coffee producing powerhouses, we love Burundi coffee and we source it every year.
The country’s coffee is produced almost entirely by smallholder farmers, and much of this small-scale production is of exceptional quality. With its super sweet, clean and often floral coffees, Burundi, every year, is increasingly is putting itself on the specialty coffee map.
