This really is a clean natural-processed coffee. The acidity profile is still intact, but the processing style has brought forth some big sweetness and turned the herbaceous-ness of the classic washed-Burundi profile into some perfume-like florals.

Rwiri is a washing station that is part of the Yagikawa Cooperative, one of the oldest cooperatives in Burundi. The name, Rwiri, means to “talk about coffee”. This coffee is a Bourbon variety grown at 1800masl. The cherries are laid in thin layers and left to slow-dry on raised African beds. Natural processing of this cleanliness is hard to come by.
