Nearly 100 small-holding family farms in northern Burundi have a hand in this special coffee, Munyinya Lot 1. A hill, or “coline” is the smallest unit of social organization in Burundi. Around Munyinya Hill, farmers travel with their cherries to the Heza washing station, where their harvest is held in separate lots to preserve the distinct flavors that come from each hill.
A cup of coffee is practically a religious experience for us. We revere it, we crave it and we anticipate brewing and drinking it every day. Every coffee has a story, a history of soil, people and culture that make each one special. And it’s that combination that keeps us curious to learn about and eager to experience the next cup.
