Long Miles Coffee Project
Ningaland, Kayanza (1700m)

Moderate elevations for Burundi standards along with the richer soils of a more remote and less farmed region yield sweet and rich flavors with lower acidity than neighboring hills.  The impeccable standards of the Long Miles team produces some of the most site transparent coffees we’ve ever encountered that faithfully and delicately translate terroir which in this coffee presents darker fruits and chocolates compared to the very different profiles of neighboring hills.

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.
