Coffee Tasting Notes

Incredibly sweet, well-structured, bourbon cultivar coffee, with notes of caramel, chocolate and earl gray tea. The cup opens with a round chocolate and caramel sweetness and finishes with a citrus acidity, a subtle bergamot orange. The black-tea like floral notes, combine with the citrus to create the impression of earl gray tea. Dried fruit, especially raisin notes, as well as some mild spice notes help round out the cup.

About The Coffee Producer

The bourbon cultivars which compose this lot lend an incredible amount of sweetness and structure to the coffee. The deep, loamy, volcanic soils further extenuate the structure of the coffee, while the shade trees and great altitude of cultivation help create a complex depth of flavor.

This coffee is produced by the Bahire community of smallholder farmers. Bahire is a Kirundi word that roughly translates to be well, be happy, or be prosperous. The coffee washing station also paid an additional premium that goes directly towards education, microloan, and grant programs designed to better Burundians living in the rural, coffee-producing areas.

This coffee is prepared for export by the founding company of the Burundian national chapter of the International Women’s Coffee Alliance, which helps women create meaningful, sustainable lives, through education and ownership of the farms and mills which they operate.

Great coffee as always

I’m not sure anyone does it better than Black Oak. The Burundi Bahire is complext, nuanced coffee that develops different flavors as the temperature drops. I use a chemex, with a ratio of 14.5:1 and I keep the water around 98 C throughout the pour. Fabulous. With the wide range of origins and processes that Black Oak offers at fair prices, I get to explore far beyond my favorite profile. I have yet to be disappointed. The team is really doing things right there.
