A fresh fruit bomb from Burundi!

This lot was hand picked by Greenco, the experts at Kibingo washing station, for an extended fermentation with Oro Yeast. Oro is tailor made to intensify and enhance cup quality with longer fermentations, in this case, 36 hours. This yeast was cultivated by a French laboratory specifically for processing with coffee to intensify flavor and enhance sweetness.

The result is a cup that's intensely sweet and very juicy! We taste notes of pineapple, cranberry, orange juice, wine and passionflower. Very full body with a complex mix of tang and sweetness.

Fresh off the roaster it's a bit funky, but the cup mellowed significantly with more rest, so don’t hesitate to let this one chill for a week or two before enjoying. If you enjoy the adventure of experimental processing and fruity coffee, or just want to take a walk on the wild side, grab some of this before it’s gone!
