In the small East African nation of Burundi, people of all ages regularly greet each other with the Kirundi phrase, “Amakuru?” This translates to, “What news?” The news is that Burundi has been producing some fantastic coffees, and we are excited to share them with you. This selection comes to us from the northern provinces of Kayanza and Ngozi along the Rwandan border where an innovative company called Greenco operates 13 washing stations that carefully select ripe cherries from small-scale farmers. Through a partnership with the Kahawatu Foundation, Greenco supports primary education and youth employment projects in addition to offering agricultural extension opportunities. With flavors of apricot, peach, meyer lemon, and red grape, Burundi Amakuru bursts with juiciness – we liken it to a tart berry cobbler in a cup. Enjoy!
