  • Bakers chocolate fragrance, milk chocolate aroma, flavor notes of dried red fruits, chocolate, vanilla and nutmeg followed by an aftertaste of sweet black tea with a mild grapefruit acidity and medium bodied silky mouthfeel.
  • Versatility is something we love about great coffee from Burundi, and this yeast inoculated washed coffee from Kibingo is no exception. Light roasts show a wide range of flavors including subtle fruit and acidity notes. Medium roasts will mute these less obvious enzymatic notes and bring the stronger notes of chocolate, vanilla and spice to the foreground.

This Burundi Kibingo is juicy and delicious, with fruit forward notes and amazing balance of acidity. Finish is caramel and goat cheese. I'm down to the last bag of my first 5lb order, so I ordered another 15lbs so I don't run out anytime soon. Definitely a standout among the beans I have roasted to date!

Thanks for taking time to share your feedback, Daniel! We have been loving that coffee as well. SUPER well-balanced.

I really feel this coffee will shine more, at least for me, at a darker roast. I am looking forward to going darker on my next roast of it. There was no anaerobic notes to it at all.
My notes based off this roast - https://roast.world/my/roasts/L_5z7_pVrAPLVmm4U9nIn
Not much fragrance or aroma. Tastes good, different. Seems like it might need to go darker or lighter. Not sure if lighter because it seemed to have some vegetable note in it, not that it was bad, just different.

A great coffee with a lot of flavor

Jared recommended this as killer washed coffee and he was not exaggerating. I roasted this to city + and it lives up for the tasting notes, especially the sweet black tea aftertaste. Don’t be turned off by the yeast! This isn’t an anaerobic processed kind of coffee. Highly recommend checking it out.

So glad you are enjoying it as much as we do, Jeff! Thanks for sharing your feedback.
