Clifton Coffee - Burundi Codenya Coop

Sorry - Sold out - it's been popular!

Getting product details...

Plums, raisin & caramel with a mild acidity.

This coffee represents the first coffee we’ve bought from Burundi. With similar growing conditions to parts of Rwanda, Burundi – and in particular Kayanza province is consistently producing some excellent coffees that make for equally good filter & espresso coffees.

Amongst many samples we cupped this season, this red bourbon/jackson varietal mix from the relatively new (2010) Codenya Coop gave us a nice clean cup of plums, raisin, black tea, butterscotch & caramel with a clean yet mild acidity.

There are just under 500 farmers that make up the Codenya coop from the Butaganzwa commune. Ripe cherries are delivered to the mill at Nyaruruma, where cherries are graded, sorted, de-pulped and then fermented underwater which gives this coffee a nice medium body.

The parchment is then rinsed thoroughly and sorted in washing channels, and then placed onto raised drying tables, with initial hand sorting of parchment taking place under shade. The drying period generally lasts for up to 2-3 weeks, until moisture level reaches 11%. The coffee is turned by hand at regular intervals, and the raised beds allow for air circulation around and under the coffee
