Mutana Hill [2021]

Mutana Hill [2021]

We’re thrilled for this inaugural partnership with Long Miles Coffee, who are producing some of the best quality coffee in Burundi. While they paid the highest prices for coffee cherries in the country this year, the Scouts Program and Trees For Kibira project are layers to this partnership that excite and inspire us for the future. With daily mist tumbling from the Kibira Forest and spilling over the hills of Mutana, farmer’s grow all kinds of produce alongside coffee. Coffee cherries from Mutana Hill families were delivered to the Heza Washing Station, floated and hand sorted, before pulping and a double fermentation. With a total of three weeks drying on raised tables, the first two days are under shade to pick out defects and just one aspect of the attention to detail. Get ready for dense and sparkling acidity, reminiscent of floral earl grey tea and cola flavours. We’ve sourced this coffee directly from Long Miles Coffee. $1 from every bag sold is contributed to Trees For Kibira - a project planting indigenous trees to aid the health of the Kibira Forest and coffee-growing communities. In response to a lack of indigenous trees, acidic eroding soils and insufficient shade for the changing climate, over 320,000 trees have been distributed to 2,700 farmers since 2018. Continued funding is necessary to continue distributing trees to more farmers and ongoing management, so we’re keen to get involved! Follow their story @longmilescoffee
