Coffees from Burundi are among our favorites with their balance between brightness and earthiness. In this silk cup we taste dried goji berry, citrus soda and oolong tea.
We're so proud to partner with JNP Coffee once again. Bavyeyi means "parents" in Kirundi. This lot is named after the stories of Jeanine Niyonzima-Aroian's (JNP Coffee Founder) mother harvesting coffee cherries to cover school fees. Bavyeyi is produced by a cooperative of about 2000 members, many of whom are Muslim women.
