Produced in Kayanza, Burundi, Kibingo is a remarkably clean presentation of Burundi coffee.
At once subtle and complex, Kibingo is an extremely refined coffee. Nougat, caramel, sweet hay, black tea and raisin on the nose make way for a cup that has a saturated sweetness reminiscent of cane sugar. There is a lovely raspberry note in the cup, along with a slight pulpy citrus (think kumquat). As the cup cools a delicate lychee character makes itself known. This lot makes it clear why Kibingo was the 2017 winner of the prestigious Cup of Excellence.
