Cupping notes: Raspberry, strawberry, toffee, caramel
Processing method: Natural (dry process)
If you love African coffees like we do, this one is definitely worth a go. This single-origin coffee from Burundi complex and delicious, capable of holding its own when compared with natural process coffees from Ethiopia. During processing, this coffee is dried while still inside the cherry, imparting pronounced fruity characteristics to the bean.
At lighter roasts, the origin characteristics of raspberry and strawberry will be best preserved. This Burundi holds up well as a medium roast, at which the berry notes are softened to something more like dried fruit, body becomes heavier, carmelized sugars increase. We recommend a light-medium roast for pour over/drip, and medium for french press or espresso.
At Sugar Creek Coffee Roasters, we specialize in hand crafted, small batch, artisanal roasted coffee. While other roasters typically pre-roast and have beans on the shelf, we don't roast until you place your order, so you can be assured the freshest roasted coffee is delivered to your door. Each coffee order is roasted to the optimal flavor of the coffee bean you order.
