Burundi - Heza Hill - Gitwe

Flavors: On the nose, it’s floral with a scent reminiscent of summer jam making. In the cup, you can find white peach, stewed fruit, grape-like acidity and a smooth, syrupy mouthfeel.

This Burundi has a truly awesome story behind it. We sourced it from the Carlsons, an American family that moved to Burundi to follow their passion for coffee, community, and the country of Burundi. They formed Long Miles Coffee Project and have since built two washing stations that coffee farmers from the surrounding hills bring their coffee cherries to. They build relationships with families of coffee growers, listen to their struggles, and build platforms for change from conversations with them. They then connect these farmers with roasters like us, who believe that good coffee doesn't just taste good but has traceability, potential for impact, and responsible practices all along the supply line. 

Our offering comes from the second washing station they built, called Heza Washing Station. 'Heza' means 'Beautiful Place' in Kirundi, the local language of Burundi. The construction of this particular washing station had numerous setbacks, but it was finally opened in April 2014. We are now proud to offer some of the first coffee to come through the station.
