raw green bean Green coffee is raw Roast prior to consumption

This is a fully washed, screen 15+ microlot from Nkanda Procasta washing station in Tangara commune, Ngozi province, northern Burundi.

Procasta work with 2,000 smallholder farmers at altitudes ranging between 1,700 and 1,950masl. This lot is milled & exported by Ikawa Nziza.Their mill is the first purpose-built specialty drymill in Burundi, designed to cater for high-quality microlot coffees.Ripe cherries are carefully selected before being pulped and washed at the mill. The coffee is then dried on raised African beds, turned periodically for even drying and covered during the hottest part of the day to prevent sun damage. Once optimum moisture levels have been reached, the coffee is transported for dry milling at Ikawa Nziza’s mill in Gashoho commune between the towns of Ngozi & Muyinga. The mill is designed to cater to small, traceable microlots. Its location in a high altitude (1,730masl) and low humidity environment provides the optimal environment to preserve the quality of the coffee and therefore obtain the highest possible price for farmers. From there the processed coffee is handpicked, bagged in Grainpro and then trucked to Mombasa for shipment.Cupping Notes:Sweet, honey, caramel, light toffee, nice acidity
