Description

Burundi is a true hidden gem in the coffee world.

Burundi is a small, land-lock African country historically ranked as one of the poorest in the world.

Despite smaller volumes of coffee produced in Burundi, farmers take much more care of their crops.

Coffee significantly contributes to the national economy, and we see yearly improvements.

Burundi can easily compete with Kenya, Ethiopia and Tanzania.

Like Rwanda, most Burundi coffees are processed and traded via regional washing stations.

This lot is the highly respected Nyagashiha from the famous Akawa Project, producers of the finest Burundi coffees.

We love Burundi coffees with sweet fruit-driven complexity, buttery body and that excellent long, clean and rich finish.

Once you try our Burundi coffee, we guarantee you will be back for more.

Brew recipes are a guide only

Espresso brew recipe

Espresso brew recipes assume professional or commercial equipment (machine in grinder) are used.

For domestic (consumer) grade, please ensure you adjust the suggested values accordingly.

Dose - 21 grams

Yield - 38 grams

Brew Time - 27 seconds

Ratio - 1 : 1.7

Tips - With plenty of sweet tamarind flavour and delicious citrus acidity, this coffee has a highly versatile application across espresso extractions.
When adding milk or dairy alternatives, play with short and tighter extractions to retain more solids in the cup.

How we roast your coffees

light, medium or dark

Each coffee in our store has a unique roast profile carefully engineered and continuously updated to achieve the best balance of flavor, body, complexity, acidity, sweetness and finish.

It's a never-ending process with new lots arriving almost weekly along with the constantly changing Melbourne weather conditions.

We don't use light, medium or dark as our guide. That's so outdated and quite frankly inaccurate with around 20 shades each of light, medium and dark.

The external or outside color is never a true indicator of a coffee's cup attributes (or performance).

In other words, coffee can appear dark outside but have under-developed internals (sour, flat, weak, thin, etc.) if it was roasted poorly.

Similarly, a light exterior can easily mask or hide internal scorching or invalid roasting profile.

The target for all of our coffees (excluding specific filter roast products that are intentionally roasted lighter) is medium.

Think cafe style and coffee that is best suitable for espresso or traditional brewing devices.

What's critically important to us is that we extract maximum goodness for you to enjoy.

After 20 years and hundreds of thousands of batches, we think our Tier 1 infrastructure, skills and experience surpass the market.

did you know about

Ground coffee

Ground coffee will lose around 80% of essential vitality after 15 minutes oxygen exposure. Even ground coffee inside of a sealed, unopened bag will stale considerably within 2 weeks.

Some brewing applications, such as espresso, require roasted coffee in peak freshness to produce a delicious extraction. Other brew methods are less sensitive to the impact of staling coffee.

To ensure freshness, we never hold, store or manufacture any ground coffees. All our coffees are packed as whole beans within 1hr of roasting to lock in freshness.

When a customer orders ground coffee, we take fresh roasted beans, cut the seal, grind, clean and re-seal within 60 seconds. All at the moment your order is packed for dispatch.

We recommend for the best coffee experience to consider purchasing whole beans and grind only enough to brew just moments beforehand.

    Amazing tamarind flavors.

    Had been worried at first not knowing if I liked tamarind in a coffee. Need not have worried, it was amazing.
