Roaster's Notes:Coming to us from our friends at JNP Coffee in Burundi, this coffee is a new region for us in Burundi and we are very excited to explore it together. Muyinga is a very remote region of Burundi, roughly 60 miles from the capital city of Gitega. 60 miles doesn't seem like a lot but because of road conditions and weather this trip can usually take 5-6 hours. Bavyeyi is only producing natural process coffees currently although a new wet mill is being built near enough to their farms to start washed processing coffees. For high quality coffees the coffee cherry needs to be processed within the first 24 hours or the cherry begins to decompose. Since their nearest wet mill is hours away the farmers in Muyinga have been forced to master natural processing. With the new wet mill being built the farmers in Muyinga will have access to producing high quality washed/wet processed coffee as well as the ability to produce more coffee every season. We are excited to be joining the Bavyeyi group in Muyinga, Rwanda on their journey in specialty coffee.
