About This Coffee

This is a fully washed, 15+ microlot from Micosta washing station in Muyinga province in North-West Burundi. Micosta was founded in 2000 in partnership with Sogestal Kirundo-Muyunga. The station works with around 3,750 smallholder farmers in Ngozi. Farmers cultivate the variety of Jackson Bourbon at altitudes ranging betweem 1,625 and 1,675masl. The best lots from this region are often referred to as ‘Ngoma Mild’, a nod to the traditional drums which are often used in traditional ceremonies and are revered as sacred.

 

THE PROCESS

 

Ripe cherries are delivered to the mill where they are graded, floated and sorted prior to de-pulping. The pulped coffee is then double fermented: 12-18 hours dry, followed by 12-18 hours wet. After fermentation the coffee is washed thoroughly and further graded in channels and then dried on raised and shaded African beds for 2-3 weeks, or until an optimum moisture content of 12% is reached. The coffee is turned by hand at regular intervals to encourage consistent drying and prevent over fermentation and mould, with the raised beds also providing air circulation to assist with this process.
