This is our first coffee from Burundi and we've been impressed from the first look at the raw (green) beans. The quality of the hand-sorting at the washing station is apparent in the consistent size and color of the beans and lack of defects found. That cleanliness carries into the flavor profile of the cup that is full of up-front flavor notes of rum raisin and cherry juice which are washed away with a delicate rooibos tea finish. Body and acidity are both balanced and in the medium range in this overall clean and pleasant drinking coffee.
