Burundi Kivubo SWP Decaf
Burundi Kivubo SWP decaf yields layers of caramelized sugars and toffee malt, a ribbon of dark chocolate, and accents of lemon rind, cinnamon stick, and pumpernickel bread. Clean cup, and snappy acidity.
Region: Bujumbura Province
Processing: Wet Process, SWP Decaf
This decaf version of Kivubo coffee is a real highlight of our most recent batch of decaf coffees that just arrived from the Swiss Water plant in Vancouver, Canada. Sweetness, acidity, cup clarity, and subtle top notes, Kivubo SWP Decaf holds it's own, and on a table of decafs, tastes much more like a "regular" brew. Kivubo Station is located in the Mutambu area of Bujumbura Province. The station acts as a collection site where farmers from the surrounding hillside can sell their whole coffee cherry after it is picked, and where that coffee will then be blended, wet processed, and dried on raised drying beds. Kivubo is one of several stations under an umbrella association that currently serves around 3,000 farmers, small-holder farms who on average are growing 200 coffee shrubs cultivated land adjacent to their homes. Like most of the region, Bourbon is the dominant varietal grown.
