Long Miles Coffee Project – August
August brings us something truly special: Long Miles Coffee Project’s Mutana Hill day-lot 36.
Not only is this coffee exceptional, but the project as a whole is remarkable and is something that we are proud to support.
The Carlson family are doing beautiful work in Burundi making sure that farmers are well looked after and that the coffee produced is that of outstanding quality. Trust me when I say that this coffee is great.
Here’s what Ben Carlson has to say about Mutana Hill:
“Mutana’s hills seem to roll into infinity. The hills are covered in a never-ending tapestry of green and possess the most breathtaking panoramic views. The edge of the Kibira forest looms only a couple of kilometres away which allows mist to fall from the forest and tumble onto farmers’ fields daily. With its mix of silty and sandy soils, Mutana can grow everything its people like to eat. Wheat, cassava, potato, onions, peas, beans, sweet potato, passion fruit and tea are grown alongside coffee to sustain Mutana’s farming families throughout the year.
Right at the tip of Mutana hill lays the burial site of great Kings. It is protected by a forest of aged trees and tangled vines that remains untouched. As a sign of respect for the past Kings and also out of fear for what lies within, no one travels through the graveyard.”
The flavours of this coffee are much like the boldness of the hills that they come from:
Delicious strawberry jam with a rose undertone.
Pop in to try this delicious gem of a coffee.
