Natural Anaerobic Burundi Kibingo
This exceptional natural processed Burundi comes to us from the Kibingo washing station in the community of Kayanza. This coffee is a fruit bomb, that immediately stood out to us on the cupping table. Lime, strawberry and orange in the aroma move to strawberry, tropical fruit and blackberry in the cup. There is also a unique juiciness to the body of this coffee that really helps it shine. We have a limited supply of this lot, be sure to grab some as it may be one of the most unique coffees you have had in years.
The Kibingo washing station sits at 1893 meters above sea level, and serves 3515 registered coffee growers in Kayanza. The washing station is equipped with 10 fermentation tanks, 2 soaking tanks and a drying field with 165 drying tables. Kabingo can process 750,000 kg of coffee cherries per day. Amavida has two offerings from this washing station, this natural processed lot as well as a washed one. Both have a unique step added to their coffee processing method: anaerobic fermentation.
This Burundi lot has Oro yeast added to t.he fermentation step during its processing. The harvested coffee cherries ferment in water anaerobically for 96 hours, and then placed on beds to dry. The cherries are raked and inspected frequently to ensure even drying. The cherries are placed in jute sacks and rested in warehouse until they are milled and prepared for export.

This coffee is for anyone adventurous! You will love this coffee.Thank you to our friends at Sucafina for helping us source this coffee and to tell the story of its producers.
