Description

Roger Havyarinamais the manager of Mutumba Washing Station in Mutumba, Burundi. Coffees are depulped the same day they’re picked here, and fermented underwater for 18–24 hours before being washed for about two hours. Then the coffees are spread on drying tables or raised beds, where they rest for about 20 days to dry. This washing station is part of SOGESTAL Kayanza.

 

Due to the small size and yield on the average coffee farm or plot, washing stations are the primary point of purchase for us in Burundi. Unlike other coffee-growing regions in Central and South America where landholdings are slightly larger and coffee-centric resources are more available, most producers do not have space on their property or the financial means to do their wet- or dry-milling. Instead, the majority of growers deliver cherry to a facility that does sorting, blending, and post-harvest processing of day lots to create different offerings.

 

The cup presents rich cocoa, caramel, grapefruit, and sweet cedar flavors.
