We love choosing coffees that challenge our perception of particular origins and processing methods. This Bourbon (varietal) does so in both areas.

It's certainly not your typical representation of an Indonesian coffee, this coffee has delicious clean flavours and beautiful complex acidity. Normally you wouldn’t expect a natural processed coffee from Sumatra (by which the ripest cherry are selected sorted and allowed to dry with their flesh still on) This in part, is because of how overcast it can be after harvesting and the high rainfall year round, making it hard to dry coffee completely.

To remedy this, coffee cherries are dried on raised beds and transparent sheets are used to accelerate the drying process. When we cupped this coffee, we were excited by what we experienced and just had to let you in on what Sumatran coffees can be like. Enjoy!

Filter Single Origin: Sehe Washing Station

$19.00

Country Of Origin: Burundi
Region: Bukinanyana, Cibitoke
Process: Washed

Varietal: Bourbon
Altitude: 1650-1680
Farmer/Producer/Mill: Sehe Washing Station
Flavour Note: Red apple, peach, hibiscus

Sehe’s name comes from the washing station where this coffee is processed. Most farms in Burundi are quite small: typically less than half a hectare in size. Because of this, farmers from this region don’t have their own processing facilities; they rely on cooperatives or washing stations like Sehe to buy and process the coffee they produce.

This means Sehe coffee – like most ‘lots’ from Burundi – is a mixture of coffee from several local farms, with beans of the same quality carefully blended together before going to market. While this limits the coffee’s traceability (‘microlots’ from a single farm are just not possible in this region), Sehe honours the local farmers’ dedication by ensuring their coffee maintains its quality in the post-harvest process.

The coffee you enjoy is a result of their hard work – not to mention the care that goes into every stage of the process.
