Burundi Bumba Hill Anaerobic Honey
Hibiscus Tea and Raspberry with Gummy Candy Sweetness
Long Miles Coffee Project
Ningaland, Kayanza (1700m)
Bumba Hill has become one of the most compelling and exciting terroirs in all of Burundi with its concentrated burst of black and red berry fruit. In some ways it brings together elements of nearby Ninga and Giku hills reflected both in the soils and the flavors. The Anaerobic Honey process amps up the ripeness and body that comes across candy-like on the palate.
Saint Frank and Long Miles came together in 2014 with a shared energy for the potential of specialty coffee to transform lives in poor remote regions. Long Miles connects small farmers from different hill communities like Bumba but until recently this remote community was incorporated into the larger Ninga Hill classification, an annual offering at Saint Frank. In 2019 we committed to partner with Long Miles in establishing a new washing station at Ninga where farmers had previously traveled the furthest to deliver their cherries. This new site is a blessing to these enthusiastic remote communities still without electricity and clean water. As we expand our reach together we look forward to seeing the unfolding transformation that unites us.
