Burundi Gitwe Natural

Huckleberry Roasters

We've been purchasing coffee from the Long Miles Coffee Project in the Muramvya province of Burundi for four years now, and last year we loved our first natural-processed fruitbomb from the Gitwe hill community. So, we brought it back for 2017, and we have a bit more to roast for this year.

Naturals - which are dried in the coffee cherry instead of washed of their fruit first - are tough to produce well, and easy to mess up.  And, they're a rarity in Burundi - there are only a few grower groups producing non-washed coffee.  Luckily for us, Long Miles first naturals last year were a home run, and this year's might be even better.

We've been loving our washed lot from Gitwe, and this natural lot is a banger, too. It bursts with the juicy strawberry we've come to expect from the best Ethiopian naturals, but also packs some of the hallmarks of our favorite washed Burundis. We taste a bit of sweet-savory complexity, honey, and milk chocolate flavors to complement the fruit-forward strawberry and red grape sweetness.
