Limited-Edition, Coffee of the Month for May 2024: Beam Reach Burundi

Ahoy, coffee connoisseurs! At Sailors Coffee Company, we're thrilled to introduce our limited-edition coffee of the month for May 2024: "Beam Reach Burundi." This exquisite brew hails from the Ngozi Province in Burundi, a landlocked country in East Africa known for its rich coffee-growing heritage. Join us as we delve into the fascinating history of coffee from this remarkable region and discover what makes "Beam Reach Burundi" a truly exceptional brew.

Nestled in the lush, fertile hills of the Ngozi Province, Burundi's coffee farms benefit from the region's ideal climate and altitude, which create the perfect conditions for growing high-quality Arabica coffee beans. Coffee cultivation in Burundi dates back to the early 20th century when German colonists first introduced coffee plants to the region. Since then, coffee production has become a vital part of Burundi's economy, providing livelihoods for thousands of smallholder farmers and their families.

What sets Burundi coffee apart is its unique flavor profile, characterized by bright acidity, fruity sweetness, and floral notes. The "Beam Reach Burundi" coffee showcases the best of Burundi's coffee-growing prowess, with tasting notes of brown sugar, nougat, and milk chocolate that dance on the palate with every sip. It's a testament to the skill and dedication of the smallholder farmers around the Bahire coffee washing station, who meticulously handpick and process each coffee cherry to perfection.

As you savor a cup of "Beam Reach Burundi," you're not just enjoying a delicious brew—you're also supporting the livelihoods of Burundi's coffee farmers and their communities. So raise a mug to the rich history and vibrant flavors of Burundi coffee, and set sail on a sensory journey unlike any other with "Beam Reach Burundi" from Sailors Coffee Company.
