What a wonderful coffee!
I mostly ordered Ethiopian Mocha, but since trying Burundi I have been converted.
It is a stronger brew than the Mocha but not any trace of bitterness, Mick and team have got the roast just right.
Freshly ground, it has a wonderful deep and rich taste.
I am ordering another Kg!!
Added 250g of this to my order as a "taster" and have been unable to stop drinking it, I think it will be the main part of my next order. Used in a Mocha with a medium grind it produces a smooth yet strong flavour with an almost Chocolate aftertaste. Love it!
As usual, the service from Pollards was excellent.
This has been a favourite of ours for a few years now. Not being overly robust it makes a great change from our more usual choices. Prepared as a flat white using a fresh fine to medium grind in Aeropress it produces a lighter shot that’s full of flavours. It’s well worth giving it a go! Pollards delivered once again with their usual efficiency and speed. We really appreciate that they have introduced their ‘Go Green’ initiative. It’s a marginal gain that we can make that will support the hard working, conscientious growers in Countries like Burundi.
Burundi is a nice coffee, but it isn't rich enough for me personally. I find I have to use too many spoonfuls to get a brew that has sufficient flavour. It's probably because the beans only have a light roast.
Not only does buying this coffee go towards a good cause, but it's also delicious! It's full of flavour and the perfect strength to start your morning.
