Candy bomb microlot from smallholder community

Kiryama is quality focused collection point for fresh, local cherry delivery

This washed microlot is a meticulously picked and sorted day lot from the Kiryama Washing Station in the northern Burundi commune of Butaganzwa. The smallholder producers in this region often own less than half a hectare, where they grow coffee alongside bananas, beans, and various root vegetables for sale and for household staples. Given the small nature of landholdings and harvests here, these producers don't attempt to process their cherry on site, and instead they deliver fresh harvests to local washing stations for additional sorting, depulping, fermenting, and drying. Kiryama receives cherry from about 4,500 producers, and this microlot, which isn't traceable beyond the washing station, stands out for its intense fruit complexity, flavor depth, and candy-like sweetness.

We love paper filtered, pour-over methods to get the most articulate brews of this fresh fruit fantasy. Dial-into mixed-berry candy, fresh raspberry, and splashes of citrus by starting with a 1:16.5 brew ratio, filtered water at 208-210℉, a medium grind, and a 3-3.5 minute brew cycle. The extraction yield ranges from bright, juicy fruits at the lower end to grape jam and black tea at higher yields.
