Burundi - Gomba Washing Station Ngozi
strawberry, key lime, whipped cream
From Our Cupping Lab
Some coffees come into their own two days after roast, some seven. This one falls in the latter category, a trait which, as one might expect, makes evaluating roast profiles a bit difficult (or, at the very least, more time-consuming). When we first tried the Burundi, we weren't too excited. Lacking in structure and complexity, we weren't sure what we'd be able to achieve even by drastically changing the profile. We decided to be patient, however, and it was certainly worth the wait!
Complexity, body, clarity; this one's a sleeper! Expect prominently sweet notes of strawberry and key lime balanced by a hint of whipped cream matching the Ngozi's creamy mouthfeel.
