BURUNDI, SHEMBATI {ESPRESSO}

from 9.00

This is the second of our washed microlots from the Shembati washing station in Burundi. This microlot represents a portion of coffee processed on a different day at Shembati. This lot is a little more floral than the last. It retains a strong dried fruit characteristic and a similar level of sweetness. The espresso expression is much more tropical-fruit driven than its filter-roasted counterpart. Burundi is a land-locked country less than half the size of Tasmania. It borders Tanzania, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Most coffee growers in Burundi have a plot of land less than half a hectare and grow subsistence crops alongside the coffee plants. As these small-hold farmers lack processing equipment buyers generally deal with washing stations instead of the farmers in contrast to somewhere like Brazil or Colombia. Shembati was established by the Coffee Processing Company, a private enterprise established to improve the lives of smallholder producers in Kayanza and Cibitoke.
