Burundi - Izuba

Location: Runinya, Kayanza Province
Cultivar: Red Bourbon
Process: Washed
Altitude: 1500-1700 masl
Taste Notes: Spiced Orange, Pecan, Green Apple

Best Brewed: Suitable for all brew methods. 

Roaster Notes: This is a juicy one! A sweet and acidic spiced orange gives a very well rounded flavour, with a pecan finish and a green apple mouthfeel. This is a real crowd pleaser for all brew methods. As an espresso based coffee, the orange cuts through milk really well and gives a good balance. In filter, the green apple shines through to finish.
