Burundi Ninga Hill


Grown by our farmer friends on Ninga Hill with the Long Miles Coffee Project in the Kayanza region.  We've loved the red fruited and sweet citrus profile of Ninga for years but its round sweet tea structure really wins us over making an excellent part for Brother Sun.

Kenya Njowa 


Grown by small scale farmers near Thunguri. Kirinyaga produced by the Long Mile Coffee Project in partnership with the Akili group.  This is a classic Kenya coffee with flavors of blackcurrent and citrus with a full body.

Colombia Bourbon Rosado


Grown by the godfather of the Pink Bourbon variety trend Gabriel Castaño in Acevedo, Huila.  Don Gabriel explores this intriguing variety with creative processing and shares his seeds with his friends.  Super sweet candy-like flavors dominate here.
