Burundi Nemba - Burundi (250g)


We have run out of stock for this item.

Cherries are collected by all individual farmers from their small garden farms. They bring the cherries to the washing station (Nemba) where the cherries are sorted and cleaned. Normally the cherries would get pulped, washed and then dried. But in this instance, the cherries were put into poly-propylene bags and a mixture of water with the yeasts were poured over them. The cherries were then left to ferment for 36-48 hours. During this time, the yeasts are able to get inside of the coffee cherries and start feeding on the sugars present in the coffee cherry mucilage. According to the station manager, the aroma that it created reminded them of banana wine, popular local homemade drink. Once the fermentation was complete, the cherries were spread out in thin layers onto raised beds and slowly dried over the course of 2 weeks.
