Burundi Nyagashiha Red Bourbon Washed - Filter
- Brown sugar
- Early grey tea
The Nyagashiha washing station is one of 13 mills that form the Akawa project, created to help producers escape the cycle of poverty in a sustainable way. The project emphasises good agricultural practices, environmental responsibility, and social equity. In 2019 the station manager, Jean-Baptist, experimented with a new double sorting method. When Proud Mary were with him in Burundi cupping all his coffees, the team gravitated towards the double sorted lots before even knowing what he had done differently. The higher scores they received were significant enough to roll out this new processing on all coffees going forwards. One of these special lots won Nyagashiha 20th place in the Cup of Excellence in 2019.
