We’re all smiles for Long Miles, a family initiative whose work has resulted in a surge of fine coffee from Burundi—present beans included! This cup is a sweet treat of savory cocoa, summer plum, and blackberry lemonade: a sip of sunshine.
This Bourbon is from the Heza washing station and was grown above 2000 masl on Munyinya Hill, where more than 1500 families are part of the Long Miles Coffee Project. This coffee includes lots from two relatively new washing stations in the high hills of the Kayanza region. The Bukeye station was constructed in 2013 and the Heza station in 2014. Both washing stations were built by the Carlson family as part of their Long Miles Coffee Project, an effort to improve quality through intensified sorting throughout the milling process, facilitate direct connections between farmers and roasters, and improve the livelihood of local coffee farmers.
Notes: Blackberry, lemon, brown sugar & dark chocolate.
"This one was disappointing. Very thin and it lost its flavor pretty soon. Tasted heavily of blueberries. Made hot with a french press."
"I normally adore Bluebeard coffees, however, this one just didn't quite do it for me. It tasted acidic and was lacking in flavor. Bummed!"
"Was dissapointed. Was thin bodied and kind of bland. Probably better brewed a lot stronger. french press."
"We really liked this one. Such a creamy and light coffee, pairs well with creamer. Loved the brown sugar-molasses flavor with blackberry hints. Really good."
"For being a light roast, this one seemed very full-bodied. The fruit was very apparent, but the coca less so. "
"Detected a little blackberry and cocoa - good coffee to enjoy on National Coffee Day!"
