Gaharo Hill and the Bukeye washing station have consistently produced some of our favorite coffees from Burundi. This lot was created from day lots delivered between June 2nd and June 16th. In the cup we find plum, blood orange, and Earl Grey. Gaharo is where the Long Miles Coffee Project began, and we have selected coffee from this hill many times over the years. Bukeye is the very first washing station built by Long Miles, and it rests at the foot of Gaharo Hill. The land was cleared by Gaharo farmers, and the bricks for its construction were collected in the valley below. The same farmers who helped build this special place now deliver their cherries to it. ABOUT THIS FIELD BLEND Varieties in Burundi are not exactly straightforward. We know that Red Bourbon and Mibirizi are being cultivated; however, we don't know at what relative percentages. Based on the history of production in Burundi there is also most likely some SL34 being grown as well. ABOUT LONG MILES COFFEE PROJECT The Long Miles Coffee Project is the dream-become-reality of Ben and Kristy Carlson. The pair moved to Burundi in 2011 with a simple dream: Help coffee growers by helping roasters source consistently high quality coffees from Burundi. Their dream has grown from working with fifty coffee growers in 2013 to working with more than 5,500 at present. Long Miles has been extremely effective in helping to actualize Burundi’s natural potential for extremely high quality coffee, while also making an incredible impact socially, economically, and environmentally. Coffees from this project are some of our most anticipated of the year, and we are humbled and honored continue supporting their inspiring work.
