This coffee is from Yagikawa Farmers Cooperative Society in Kayanza Province, Burundi. Yagikawa operates as most other cooperative collection stations in the region: as a central location where small farmers/coop members can deliver whole cherry for sale, processing, and eventual export outside of the country. The hand labor that goes into these coffees is apparent when looking at the green beans and roasted coffee, with very few defects found. This significantly adds to cup consistency from one brew batch to the next. The station itself is situated at 1750 meters above sea level, affording access to some of the highest farms in the area. Bourbon is the dominant cultivar in the region (as is the case in most of Burundi), a variety known for syrupy sweetness when grown in high altitudes. This is a fully washed coffee, wet-processed and dried on raised African beds at the station.
* Roast day is once a week on Wednesday - Shipping day on Friday. Please read our policies for further details.
