Burundi Gahahe Honey

11,0036,00

We continue with the coffees of Burundi! This time we bring the Gahahe Honey. An impressive coffee with a lot of personality.

From the moment you taste it, the fruity notes of citrus, blueberry and white grape stand out, followed by a pronounced sweetness reminiscent of honey and accompanied, in the background, with pleasant notes of black tea that give this coffee that complexity that every good coffee must have.

This Burundi coffee works like a charm both as a filter, where we will obtain a complex coffee with a very elegant delicacy, and as an espresso, where this coffee will bring out, all of a sudden, all those fruity and sweet notes that we have mentioned. A delight for the palate in any of its forms!

Harvest

During the harvest season, all coffee is selectively hand-picked. Most families only have 200 to 250 trees and the harvest is done almost entirely by the family. Bugestal knows that even small distances can be time consuming and expensive for small farmers, and they know that receiving cherries immediately after harvest is crucial for quality. Therefore, small producers can take their cherries directly to a washing station or to one of the 12 collection sites located in the growing areas. Farmers are paid the same for their quality cherry, regardless of where they bring their cherries. In this way, farmers are not harmed by their location and Bugestal bears the cost of transport to the stations. Bugestal also supports farmers with higher prices. The average purchase price of cherries for Bugestal in 2019 was significantly above average. The stations make the first payment to farmers between June 15 and June 30. The second payment comes later in the summer. If the coffee wins a competition or is sold at extremely high specialty prices, Bugestal makes another payment about a year after the harvest season. Of course, quality is the key to this system and quality assurance begins as soon as the farmers deliver their cherries. The cherries are processed under constant supervision. Pulping, fermentation time, washing, carcass sorting and final soaking are closely monitored. At the time of delivery, the whole cherry is placed in small cubes as a first step to verify the quality. Bugestal still buys floats (damaged, underripe, etc.) but immediately separates the two grades and only markets them as B grade cherry. After floating, the higher grade cherry is sorted again by hand to remove all damaged cherries, underripe and overripe. After sorting, the cherry is pulped within 6 hours of delivery. During pulping, the cherry is high and low density separated in a Mackinon 3 disc pulper equipped with an additional separation disc. The coffee and the remaining mucilage are then transported to the drying tables where they are slowly dried for 2-3 weeks, during which time they are repeatedly sorted and sieved to ensure uniform drying. The coffee is left to dry from sunrise to sunset and covered with a sheet overnight or when it rains. The humidity level is carefully controlled and any parchment with visual defects is removed.

Coffee in Burundi

Burundi has long been overlooked compared to its neighboring East African specialty coffee producing powers. However, the Burundi season, for us, is one of the highlights of the annual coffee calendar. The country’s coffee is produced almost entirely by small farmers and much of this small-scale production is of exceptional quality. With its super sweet, clean and often floral coffees, Burundi is increasingly placed on the specialty coffee map every year. Coffee is of the utmost importance for families and the country in general. Considering this, improving and expanding the coffee infrastructure is not just a way to improve income, it is a way to revolutionize the income potential of an entire nation. Building washing stations and expanding agricultural extension work can be excellent ways to improve coffee quality. The wash stations are critical to improving the standards of the cup profile and the global reputation of Burundi coffee. Both state and private actors drive Burundi’s coffee industry and play key roles as washing station management companies and exporters. The state-owned companies are called Sogestals, short for “Sociétés de Gestions des Stations de Lavage” (Washing Station Management Companies). Privately owned companies can operate under a variety of different names.
