Honey Burundi Kibingo

This honey-processed coffee from Burundi’s Kibingo Central Washing Station features a juicy body and a syrupy aroma of figs and nougat. Candied fruit flavors abound in the cup. This one is reminiscent of peach cobbler and candied fig.

Smallholder coffee producers comprise roughly one fifth of the total population of Burundi. Coffee is the backbone of the country’s economy, and Burundi’s coffees have continued to grow in popularity throughout the world of specialty coffee.

Kibingo Central Washing Station, one of thirteen stations managed by Greenco, is located in the northern province of Kayanza, near Burundi’s border with Rwanda. The station serves 3,515 registered coffee growers in the hills that surround Kibingo. The average farmer in this region has approximately 250 coffee trees. By industry standards, each smallholder in this region of Burundi produces a relatively small harvest.

When smallholders bring their coffees to Kibingo Central Washing Station during harvest times, they are able to obtain both organic fertilizer from reconverted coffee pulp and low-cost coffee seedlings. In addition, Kibingo Central Washing Station participates in a number of support and farmer outreach projects intended to both strengthen cooperatives and improve quality. As a result, Kibingo’s coffees have been very well-received in Burundi’s Cup of Excellence competitions.

The Bottom Line

The smallholders who use Burundi’s Kibingo Central Washing Station have produced a dense and fruity honey-processed coffee that is a favorite of the team at Amavida Coffee Roasters. It is juicy with great body and a mellow acidity. Candied fruit notes of fig, peach cobbler, and caramelized apple are pronounced in both the dry aroma and the brewed beverage.

Thank you to our friends at Sucafina for helping us source this coffee and to tell the story of its producers.
