Size

Mutambu Hill is an anaerobically fermented red bourbon from West Burundi. There are big grapefruit and orange flavours along with a hint of coconut. Bright, vibrant and crisp, Mutambu Hill has got everything you want from an African natural.

The red bourbon beans were grown by Gerome Ndayahaga and Speciose Nyandwi, two smallholders in Mutambu, about 30 miles from Lake Tanganyika. Their crops are processed at the Migoti Coffee Washing station and are anaerobically fermented to emphasise the citric qualities of the beans.

Mutambu Hill is perfect for all you natural coffee lovers and will wake up even the most sleepy taste buds. 

Migoti Mountain, Mutambu Commune of Bujumbura Province

Migot Hill washing station operates in a region referred to as Migoti Mountain, in Mutambu Commune of Bujumbura Province, 30 km from the centre of Bujumbura. Coffee production has taken place in this area since the early 1900s.

Burundi is among the smallest coffee-producing countries in East Africa, with a population roughly the same as London.  It has the perfect conditions for coffee production: elevations of 1500 - 2000 m, Arabica Bourbon coffee trees, abundant rainfall, and approximately 800,000 families who cultivate an average of 150-200 coffee trees per farm.

Bright, Zesty and Floral

Treat yourself to exquisite flavours of Burundi. Grown in Africa, this coffee features a bold zesty but smooth profile with a hint of floral notes. Enjoy a cup of this delicious coffee each morning and jumpstart your day.

Natural

The natural process requires skill and attention to get right. The ripe coffee cherry is picked and left out to ferment in the sun,  turned regularly so that no mould grows. The enzymatic reactions that occur here sink right into the seed (or bean), and leave you with a coffee that's full of funkiness and complexity. 

The process historically was common in places with less water available, but you'll see it all over the world these days, in producer's quests to find wild results in their lots.
