Light, bright, and berry-licious: this is the Burundi of our dreams! This fresh crop of Burundi Kibingo Natural from Vashon Coffee Company is a handful of blackberries for your morning mug. You’ll taste a stunningly clean, juicy profile of ripe blackberries, with a honey-like sweetness, soft hibiscus florals, and a mellow acidity like golden pears. The finish is rich and long, full of raw sugar and lingering purple fruit. This elegant, effervescent cup showcases some of the best natural-processed coffee we’ve ever tasted from up-and-coming Burundi.
Located in the mountainous Northern region, near the border with Rwanda, Kayanza province has a well-earned reputation for producing some of Burundi’s finest coffees: at last year’s Cup of Excellence, 8 of the top 10 coffees came from Kayanza! Kayanza is also known for being the water source of the Nile River—the perfect place for washing stations that use the clean, fresh water to process coffee cherries. Fine Burundi coffee is bright and sweet, delicate, with an interplay of citrus, berries, and florals that can be spectacularly clean and complex. While the vast majority of Burundi coffees are washed process, this natural Burundi Kibingo represents a special new wave of Burundi’s coffee scene.
Of all the Burundi coffee we’ve tasted, nothing’s come close to the sheer amount of fruit flavor and sugary sparkle of Kibingo Natural. Roasted fresh from artisan roaster Vashon Coffee Company, this limited lot is sure to fly out the door. So don't wait! Reserve your bag of Burundi Kibingo Natural today, and brew up a sweet sip of the summer to come.

||★★★★★||★★★★★ In the french press, this was a favorite! Even as a light roast, it was full of flavor. Light, sweet, fruity.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ I loved this coffee! It was smooth and sweet. I actually went back quickly and ordered three more bags.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Good coffee- like the subtle flavors of the fruit. Smooth and easy to drink.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This was a middle of the road coffee for us. It was good, but nothing really stood out to make it exceptional. It is a light roast so be prepared for caffeine jolt!|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Interesting flavor, tasted the pear mostly, also the sweet honey. Paired it with a touch of creamer and it made it nice and sweet, subtle light fruit flavor.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Excellent coffee! So flavorful but not overwhelming or bitter. Very easy to drink, had a nice pleasant sweetness, the honey I assume & loved the pear taste with a mild hint of fruit...kind of had like a mild wild fruit taste. Overall just excellent.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Great coffee. Certainly is light so might benefit from brewing more strongly. Loved the honey and pear notes.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Well rounded overall. The honey and pear came through to me more than the blackberry but maybe I would have more flavor using my chemex instead of my Wave.|
