Burundi Microlot range is an exciting discovery from late 2012 and we have sourced coffees from the last 6 crop harvests. Each new arrival just keep getting better and better.
This coffee is so exceptional, we have elevated the Burundi Microlots into our elite group of current Grand Cru selections.
Over the many years we have been providing quality Burundi coffees in our mycuppa store, it's built up a legendary following amongst our customers with so many loyal coffee enthusiasts instantly selecting the Burundi as their regular, goto coffee. In our opinion, we now regard Burundi coffees as a legend and core product offering within our extensive portfolio.
Similar to an Ethiopian Sidamo but with more complexity - more body, longer finish and with greater yummo chocolate notes.
Superb in either espresso, milk, filter or plunger - a very versatile coffee. Limited stocks.
We are constantly in contact with our raw coffee broker to top up our large range of specialty coffees on a weekly basis.
Often, we just say "tell us the best coffee you cupped in the last week" ?
We have developed a great relationship so that I have high levels of trust in the broker's own palate.In the cup, we taste brilliant treacle-flavoured intense sweetness.
It reminds us of classic washed Ethiopian Sidamo, but with more refined complexity - a hint of herbal tropical fruit that makes way to a rounded chocolate finish.Burundi is a very small, land-lock African country.
The volume of coffee produced by Burundi is small compared to their African neighbors, however, the attention and care provided by the farmers to their crop is first-rate.
Whilst all good things must come to an end, alas, the Mirango Microlot #1 has reached the end of our holdings but we have plenty of quality microlots inbound.
What a sensational coffee we have enjoyed over the last 6 years - a complete surprise package and definitely under-rated.
What is it exactly that made the Burundi special ?
Flavor was high and acid balanced. There is a unique fruit element to the cup that is not offensive or overly dominant - just super pleasing and refreshing.
Burundi was the sort of coffee that leaves you wanting another cup immediately after finishing.
It can also work extremely well black or with milk, making it the perfect versatile coffee to have at home when one person likes black and the other milk-based espresso.
You will never be disappointed with our Burundi !
Some seasons we are blessed with abundant quality in the coffees that come from Africa and other times it can be hard to pick a winner.
It's all down to mother nature and how kind the seasonal growing conditions and harvest will develop the fruit.
The 2015/16 crop was rather disappointing, lack-lustre, ordinary and just plain full of boring coffees coming out of Ethiopia, so our Burundi has been standing head and shoulder above just about any Sidamo, Limu and most Yirgacheffe's arriving into Australia.
Big call, but that's our firm view.
There is a simple reason our cafe customers constantly ask us to roast this bean - their customer's love it - especially in milk.
The unique cup quality and character justifies this bean having earned it's place in our Grand Cru list.
