Burundi Kayanza Heza
Heza is a drastically steep washing station: It's built on the side of a treacherous slope that faces a natural forest reserve in Kayanza. There, the hot sun and a billowing, arboreal breeze stitch the mountainside together like bleachers in a coliseum. Ben Carlson and his team of young farmers work together to perfect drying processes for over 200 distinct coffee terroirs. We selected coffee from three coffee hills (Nkonge, Gitwe, and Mikuba) from six specific harvest days for a numerically serendipitous lot that yields one objectively delicious coffee.
