 RASPBERRY • NECTARINE • DARK CHOCOLATE • JUICY

The structure of this honey Red Bourbon is built on the stone fruit qualities. They are refreshing, juicy and will lead into complementary tones of raspberry and dark chocolate. As the cup cools down the acidity settles and you'll be left with a sweet and juicy cup.

Brew Guide

A very versatile coffee we'd recommend this as EspressoAeropressV60, French Press, Kalita or Clever.

At the Farm, Gahahe
Gahahe is a community washing station in the Kayanza province of Burundi. If you look at a map of Burundi, this is in the central North of the country, bordering Rwanda. It's where the majority (75%) of the countries coffee is grown.

The reason, or story at least, goes like this: a former king of Burundi one hundred or more years ago originated from Kayanza and loved coffee. He loved coffee and Kayanza so much that he decided it would be the only place coffee would be cultivated throughout the country, thus legislating that it could ONLY be grown there... It's now grown throughout the Northern provinces and I think scattered throughout the country. I've visited Ngozi and Muyinga the past two years as well and have really enjoyed the coffees being produced. 

This is the second year we've had Gahahe as a part of our offering and I'll be honest with you we didn't actually purchase it the first year - it arrived accidentally instead of Gakenke, a neighbouring community washing station also owned by GreenCo. You can see how easily that might be mistaken... Now we much prefer the profile of Gahahe and have continued supporting them.

This lot is a honey processed Red Bourbon. I find it sweet, like a warmed honey or a brown sugar simple syrup you might add to a cocktail. It's nicely balanced, with a medium acidity backing up that sweetness and giving structure. There's citrus notes, some soft tropical fruits and even some light florals if you close your eyes hard enough... Just teasing on that one, I don't think closing your eyes helps with tasting.

I make a V60 pourover at home and think this works great with my recipe here and is very enjoyable as filter or immersion. Whatever your style, this honey processed Red Bourbon from Gahahe should work nicely :)
