$19.95

Clear

This exceptional natural coffee is from Nemba in Burundi. This coffee’s sugary aroma is reminiscent of apple pie, nougat, and molasses. Unique fruit flavors of apricot and blackberry are balanced by the delicate sweetness of lychee and a pleasantly citric acidity. These specialty beans earned a score of 92 points by Coffee Review

An Exciting Natural Process Coffee from Nemba

Situated in the northern province of Kayanza, the Nemba Cooperative and washing station is responsible for processing some of the finest Burundi coffees. The Nemba washing station is part of a group of washing stations managed by Greenco. More than 3000 Burundi coffee producers located near the Kibila forest make use of Nemba’s station, which features more than two hundred natural coffee drying tables.

We have purchased natural coffee from Nemba during past harvests, and along with our friends at Kickapoo Coffee and Greenco were able to work with the non-profit Kahawatu Foundation to purchase goats for four local villages comprised of more than one hundred farmers in the area surrounding Nemba. These goats provide milk and give the Burundi coffee farmers a way to produce income during the off-season. For more information on Nemba and the goat project, check out our blog post.

The Bottom Line

Burundi’s mountainous regions offer the perfect climate for coffee cultivation, and this natural processed coffee from Nemba is representative of the unique flavors available in coffees from the region. Fans of natural coffees will appreciate the distinctive aroma of apple pie and molasses coupled with apricot, green apple, and blackberry flavors. A structured body, pleasant acidity, and lingering finish make this Burundi coffee one of our best offerings. Recently these specialty beans earned a score of 92 points by Coffee Review
