Description of Coffee |
Jeanine Niyonzima-Aroian grew up in Burundi's capital city listening to her mother recount stories of cultivating coffee in her home province of Ngozi in order to pay for school fees. One Northwestern MBA and a 20-plus year career in international business later, Jeanine found herself being pulled back to Burundi... and to coffee. Today, Jeanine is the founder of JNP Coffee, which sources exceptional coffees from her homeland of Burundi. JNP is committed to encouraging transformational change for local coffee farmers by promoting gender equality, supporting financial literacy education, and developing leadership skills.
As we already mentioned, all of the coffees from JNP come from the mountains of Burundi, but this microlot in particular holds a special place in Jeanine's heart. It is grown in the Ngozi province, the backdrop of all those stories her mother used to tell. In Kirundi, bahirwe can be used to mean "successful", "prosperous", and "happy" - all ideals which Jeanine is helping to become a reality for the women, farmers, and people of Burundi.
This coffee is a sure sign to us that summer is coming! Burundi naturals are typically the first African coffees to become available each season, and it is so, so good to have them back. In the cup, this coffee is bright and fruity, as you might expect from any African natural. But this one also is distinctly jam-y in its sweetness, with an incredibly pleasant yeast bread quality about it - which reminds us of the perfect jelly-filled donut.
