Burundi Twaranyuzwe

Cupping notes

Cola, cherry, wine, tonic.

Description

The Twaranyuzwe cooperative work from the Kavumu washing station around the Kayanza commune to great effect, having produced Cup of Excellence winning lots in the past, though as a country, Burundi currently no longer supports CoE. Kayanza is both the name of a province in the north of Burundi, and the capital city of the province too.

The Cooperative was founded back in 2013 by smallholder coffee farmers, focussing on improving their future and building their own washing station in 2015. They further joined the secondary cooperative COCOCA (Union of the Cooperatives of Coffee growers) to further their skill set and market better to buyers further afield. COCOCA has around 30 cooperative members, and provide services such as dry milling

Currently Twaranyuzwe have just over 200 members, tending just under 40,000 trees. Their coffee is pulped on a McKinnon disc pulper.

Coffee for this lot is picked ripe, and laid to dry that day on raised beds after an initial cleaning to remove floaters, leaves and sticks. Once dried, cherry is pulped and delivered to the Horamama dry mill for milling and preparation for export.
