$21.25 CAD

Taste Notes: Oolong Tea / Strawberry / Vanilla

This is our first year buying coffee from Kibingo, and their coffee offers everything I love in classic Burundian coffee but with an extra level of refinement.  After tasting this elegant cup, it comes as no surprise that Kibingo’s coffees took both 1st and 2nd  place spots at the illustrious 2017 Cup of Excellence competition. Kibingo was built in 1986 in the Kayanza Commune in the Kayanza province, close to the Congo-Nile Crest. The name 'Kibingo' comes from the Kirundi word urubingo, which means 'reeds'. Reeds were planted along the river to contain the water and to prevent the surrounding soils from eroding.
