Kayanza, Burundi


- From The Barn Berlin - 

Burundi is very fertile despite ongoing deforestation in many areas. With altitudes up to 2000 meters, volcanic soils, and rainfall of 1300 mm per year, the growing conditions for coffee are very good.

This is the first year that Long Miles have ever processed washed coffee from Bumba Hill. It was processed on the brand-new Ninga Hill Washing Station. The processing and sorting was extremely accurate and done with the highest level of attention to quality.

Notes of tangerine and rose are predominant in this cup. Supported by aromas of grapefruit and violet. Sweet sugarcane rounds off the balance in this extremely clean cup profile. The body is elegant. Bravo!

You have to cross over three rivers and pass by two province borders to reach Bumba Hill. The farming communities that call Bumba home are far beyond the reach of clean drinking water and electricity. Coffee is the most important crop grown on the hill, closely competing with corn and beans. Step closer to the center of the hill and you’ll find a local market where people sell baskets full of freshly harvested crops and trade other household essentials. Only one primary school stands tall on Bumba hill.

Year after year, Long Miles have met challenge after challenge trying to bring a washing station closer to Bumba hill. Coffee farmers from Bumba had been delivering their cherries to Bukeye Washing Station or the nearest Long Miles collection point, traveling more than three hours by foot. This year, a major step-change has happened: Long Miles have finished their brand-new washing station, Ninga Hill, only a stone’s throw away from Bumba. Constructed with traditional African raised drying tables, coffee farmers now walk or bicycle the day’s harvest of cherry to the new delivery site.
