We are excited to introduce this coffee to the Good As Gold coffee line-up. One, it's a very flavorful coffee with hints of tangerine, figs, and a bright acidity that finishes with a silk body, but there is also a local collection. Just like our Burundi Kinyovu, this coffee comes from JNP coffee importers of Shrewsbury MA. Usually, we would select this coffee for our Airis Coffee brand but we are hoping that we will have this offering year in and year out because we feel it is that good.
This Burundi Mugano comes from the very high elevation Mahonda washing station. A group of about 40 farmers from this area produced this lot. They utilize many of the industries best practices, thanks to the support that their award premium payments provide. This is one of the last washing stations to open in the area, because at this elevation, while flowering happens at the same time as other trees in the region, the cherries take longer to mature. That extra time generates more complex sugars, bringing a natural sweetness to this coffee.
Grind your coffee as close to brewing as possible. Match the grind of coffee to your brewing method. We recommend using 2 tablespoons of ground coffee for 6 ounces of water. Adjust the amount of water or coffee to achieve your desired strength.
