Munkaze: Bourbon Natural – Burundi


Ephrem at Munkaze washing station has all but replicated the flavor profile from last year–perfect for such a nostalgic cup.  There are notes of raspberry acidity, lavender, & pomegranate, followed by childhood flavors of Nutty Bars, PB&J, and dried fruits, all floating in a buttery body.

We roast all coffee fresh to order.  Please allow 3 business days to process your order.

This coffee comes from the Munkaze washing station, co-owned and managed by Ephrem Sebatigita.  Munkaze washing station processes coffees from Ephrem’s family farm and 815 of the surrounding farms.  Ephrem is heavily involved in coffee education not only in Burundi, but in the whole of Africa, which is fitting as his washed bourbon took 2nd in the 2018 Burundi Cup of Excellence competition.  We are privileged to partner with Ephrem and the Munkaze washing station through our friends at Homage Coffee Source.
