Cafe du Burundi cupping

Burundian Coffee

Burundi’s coffees are known for their sweet profile, heavy body, and fruity acidity. Washed and double washed coffee processing methods are common, both of which lead to a clean profile. The East African country also benefits from generally high altitudes and volcanic soil.

Event Schedule

All events will be held at the Café du Burundi booth K16 (co-hosted with Perfect Daily Grind). Café du Burundi invites all roasters, producers, baristas, and coffee professionals to attend.
