*Reserve List* Burundi, Yagikawa Cooperative

Purple grapes, golden raisins, maple syrup, dried apricot

Yagikawa Coop is a group of over 800 small-holder farmers in the Kayanza region of Burundi. This coop was founded in 2007 and is one of the oldest cooperatives in Burundi. In Kirundi, the official language of Burundi, Yagikawa means “Talk About Coffee”. Coffee is delivered in cherry and fermented for 12-18 hours before being dried on raised beds. Drying times from 10-14 days are typical in Kayanza depending on the weather.

In this cup we find punchy notes of purple grape, raisin and maple sweetness and notes of dried apricot.
