Cupping Room Collection | Burundi MashaRegular price $ 17.00
Known as the "Heart of Africa", Burundi is a land-locked and resource poor country. Their predominately agricultural economy employs more than 90% of the population, with its primary exports being coffee and tea - making coffee the heart of Burundi, providing hope for a better future.
The Masha Washing Station was built in 1989 and collects cherries from over 2,500 local coffee farmers, processing more than 400 tons of coffee during harvest season. It has earned a reputation for consistently producing top quality coffees with well-balanced, complex fruit profiles.
In the cup, the Burundi Masha has notes of tangerine and tamarind, with an aromatic honey-sweetness. This coffee pairs nicely with savory foods, marmalade and the classic panettone.
Having cupped numerous Burundi coffees for our Cupping Room Collection, I was pleasantly surprised by the complex flavor profile and vivid fruit notes in the Masha. Like all African coffees, this Burundi is brimming with taste. ~Stefano Bizzarri, Roaster
