Detour - Gaharo: Washed, Burundi (300g)
Grown in the Muramvya region surrounding the special Gaharo Hill, this Red Bourbon lot is created by 322 producers delivering freshly picked coffee cherry to the Bukeye Washing Station. Gaharo Hill is where the Long Miles Project journey began as the first washing station was built here on a piece of land cleared by Gaharo farmers, and bricks were made from clay found in the valley below. These farmers who helped build Bukeye from scratch now deliver their coffee cherries. Once freshly handpicked at peak ripeness and delivered to the station, the lots are floated and hand sorted to remove defects, depulped on the day of harvest, and then fermented dry for 12 hours, rinsed in fresh water and dried on traditional African raised beds for 16-20 days.
