Burundi Kayanza Mpanga


The first time we cupped this exceptionally clean coffee, we were in San Diego, California—almost as far from Burundi as you can get without launching into orbit. The next year, our coffee buyer, Charlie, made a point of journeying to Kayanza, where the Mpanga washing station continues to produce the earthy and cherry-sweet coffees that made this hilly region irresistible to fellow coffee fanatics.
