From the washing station with a tongue bending name Buziraguhindwa, comes some of the most interesting and complex coffees from Burundi. This is our third year, that we buy from this washing station via Nordic Approach. As of this year they are now able to separate and trace the specific area and lots all the way trough the processing.
The Buziraguhindwa was the producer Salum Ramadhans first washing station. Nordic Approach bought their first coffees from him in 2012 and has been working with him ever since. We jumped on the wagon in 2016, and each year we are excited to taste the fantastic work that they do.
The Washing station is located in the Kayanza region, with coffees grown at heights starting at 2000 mas. This gives the potential for some amazing coffees, and this is certainly the case with the Muruta, that we where able to get our hands on.
The region is made up of a lot of small farmers that bring their coffee cherries to Buziraguhindwa. Kayanza is known for their high quality, and Salum and his crew is in close dialog with the local farmes, to help them understand the benefits of picking the cherries at the right ripeness. This way both Salum and the farmes can get an even higher premium for their high quality and hard work.
Good coffee starts with freshly roasted beans. The beans must be of high quality and roasted gently as to preserve the sweetness and the innate flavours in the bean. Our coffees come from micro lots from all over the world. Carefully selected and gently profile roasted to the brighter side. We omni-roast all coffees so you can brew them just the way you prefer.
