SET | 12oz Bag KINYOVU, 100g MIKUBA 48hr, 100g MIKUBA 60hr
The harvest in Burundi this year is one of the smallest we have ever seen. But, thanks to our friends at Long Miles Coffee Project, we were able to acquire three stunning examples of everything we love about Burundi washed coffees! Knowing our propensity toward experimental and exploratory flavor profiles, LMCP sent us one classic, washed micro-lot and two single-bag experimental micro-lots. On the cupping table, we were absolutely blown away by the differences in flavor profile for each of these coffees, made possible by each unique fermentation and processing methods.
In the end, we thought the best way to showcase these micro-lots and their incredible diversity is to offer them to you as a set, so you can have the same - potentially mind-blowing! - experience we had at the cupping table. This set represents what the future of specialty coffee in Burundi can hold, and we for one are dedicated to supporting those farmers and producers in the country who are working so diligently to cultivate that future.
The set includes:
1 ) Kinyovu - Washed - golden raisin, lime zest, pear (12 oz Bag)
This lot delivers that classic LMCP washed flavor profile - it's vibrant, juicy, and delicious. While the two anaerobic lots take these flavors listed above and add nuance to them, this lot keeps it OG. It was processed at the Bukeye washing station, using tradition Burundi washed processing methods.
This lot was delivered to the Heza washing station on June 18. It was pulped, placed into Afritanks where it rested for 48 hours, and then moved to fermentation tanks where it was washed, channel graded, and soaked for eight hours before being removed to drying beds until July 8.
3) Mikuba 60 hr - Anaerobic Washed - Macintosh apple, tart mango, green grape (100g Bag)
This lot was delivered to the Heza washing station on June 21. It was pulped, placed into Afritanks where it rested for 60 hours, and then moved to fermentation tanks where it was washed, channel graded, and soaked for eight hours before being removed to drying beds until July 12.
