This exceptional coffee comes to us from Kayanza Province in Burundi, where 2,250 coffee growers from the surrounding hills farm more than 715,725 coffee trees for processing at the Kibingo Washing Station, known for its position alongside a wooden bridge near the Congo-Nile crest. “Kibingo” comes from the Kirundi word “urubingo”, meaning reeds—which were planted along the river bed to contain water and protect soil from erosion.
Our search for a dynamic, fruity flavor profile to join our single origin menu led us to Kibingo. Two years later, it remains a Joe favorite, thanks to our continued delight at its quality as well as a close relationship with its importer, Sucafina—a relationship we hope to deepen through Sucafina’s ongoing projects in Burundi, which aim to unite quality focus and community benefit at the farmer level. A different coffee from this same washing station earned first place in the 2017 Burundi Cup of Excellence.
Freshly Roasted: All orders are roasted on Monday and Thursday and are shipped on the same day. Note that if you order Two-Day Shipping after 7am on any given day, your order will be processed the following roast day. We do this to ensure your coffee arrives to you as fresh as possible!
