Showcasing how different processing methods can impact flavour profile with a Trio release from Burundi. This is the honey process.

--

We’ve seen a huge social and economic shift in Burundi over the years, which has generated many improvements to the production of high-quality coffee in the country. 

When we approached the Gakenke Washing Station last year, we were amazed to hear of the incredible coffee quality in the area and couldn’t wait to showcase not one, but three in our roster for 2022. 

The honey process involves depulping and drying coffee cherries in the sun, without passing them through water. This ensures there is still some mucilage attached to the coffee cherry, which translates to the increased fruitful notes in this coffee. Showcasing sticky blackberry jam and delicate assam tea flavours, with a rich, syrupy body.

LIVE TRANSPARENCY REPORT 

BREW RATIOS:

  • Espresso: 1:2 coffee to water, extracted in 28-32 secs
  • Filter: 60-65g coffee per litre of water, brewed for 3-4 mins

ROAST TYPE:

  • We create a new and unique profile for each coffee we roast. Although the profiles are different, our approach is always the same, to highlight and accentuate the flavours created at the farm and mill. This means we don't label our coffees as espresso, filter, dark or light roast. This coffee is omni-roast, meant to be delicious however you brew. We believe the heart of speciality is keeping the identity and character of every coffee intact and alive, no matter the brew method.

    Amazing

    I have tried the Gakenke (washed) and loved it so i thought of giving the (honey) i try which was as delicious as the washed. Very complex and the acidity is just perfect!
