Long Miles Coffee Project

The Long Miles Coffee Project is a project that we have admired for several years. With our Kenyan coffee Anna we laid the foundation for our joint cooperation last year, but actually the people behind Long Miles started their work in Burundi. You are now one of the first today to hold the second coffee of our collaboration in your hands. We are more than proud to present this coffee to you today. For us, Long Miles are a role model when it comes to combining social and ecological sustainability with high quality and exceptional taste.

The variety

Crisp & Clean: Bourbon.

Bourbon, a variety characterized by its incomparably clear flavor profile, and Burundians are rightly proud of the wonderfully clean cups they produce. State mandated, Bourbon is currently the only variety grown in Burundi. The variety is of pure Arabica descent, which means that it is not a hybrid of different varieties. If you now take a look at the neighboring country to Kenya, which is not far away, it quickly becomes clear what an economic disadvantage the cultivation of only one variety means. Because the yield of a Bourbon plant is around 2-3kg of cherries per tree per harvest, while the varieties grown in Kenya yield around 15-20kg+ per tree.

Yet another reason why we enjoy the cup of this crispy bourbon.

To loosen the slime that's still stuck, a team dances with their feet on the slippery parchment.
The beans are then rinsed in fresh water, sorted by density and soaked for another 4 to 6 hours in the last sink.

Trees for Kibira

"Trees For Kibira is a long-term project that aims to plant native African trees on all of the hills in Burundi where our coffee is grown, to mitigate the effects of climate change and promote the practice of sustainable coffee growing. We hope to that planting will benefit the health of the local rainforest, the Kibira Forest, and the coffee-growing communities living on its fringes.To date, we have planted 322,000 native and agroforestry trees at a cost of $140 per 1,000 trees.Our goal for the upcoming planting season is to plant 500,000 trees." - Long Miles
