Burundi, Mikuba Lot 5 takes you on a journey to the captivating hills of Mikuba. Sourced from the pristine landscapes flanked by the deep waters of the Ruvubu River and within close proximity to the renowned Heza Washing Station, our coffee beans boast a unique tasting profile of luscious purple grape, delicate jasmine flower, and a rich syrupy mouthfeel.
The dedicated farmers of Mikuba sometimes traverse mere meters, while others journey over 5km, ensuring the cherries they deliver are of utmost quality. This coffee is a testament to the land it comes from—a region adorned with vibrant blue and yellow flowers, winding dirt paths, and expansive forests of acacia trees. Every corner of Mikuba is a mosaic of colour, with patches of tomatoes, sweet potatoes, cabbages, and more wrapped in hues of gold and green. The thoughtful planting of banana tree canopies alongside the coffee plants ensures an optimal cool environment, allowing the beans to develop their distinctive flavour profile.
Experience Mikuba Lot 5, where nature and dedication brew in every cup.
