This washed coffee from the Butihinda washing station in Burundi is our 2nd lot of the year from Angèle Ciza of Kalico Coffee.

The cup profile is bursting with complex aromatics of florals and berries leading to a delicate tea-like texture, highlighted by notes of dried apricot, cocoa and mixed berry jam.

Located in the North-Eastern Provinces of Burundi, the Buthinda Washing Station is part of a network of seven wet mills owned and operated by Angèle Ciza of Kalico to combat poverty and support Women’s coffee in Burundi. The coffees from this network not only represent the high quality and cup profile Burundi has to offer, but they also illustrate the powerful leadership and perseverance of Angèle, whose work has encouraged thousands of farmers and continues to be a major source of inspiration for women in coffee in Burundi. 80% of the coffee farms bringing coffee cherry to this mill are owned or managed by women.
