Nkonge, a washed Burundi from the wonderful @kaffa_oslo, is our coffee for May. It's a stunning, sugary sweet coffee that finishes with a burst of intense tropical acidity, like having a piña colada.
Nkonge is produced by the couple Ben and Kristy Carlson as a part of their Long Miles Project. The Carlson's uprooted their entire family on a long journey from the US to Burundi to improve the lives of coffee growers in Kayanza. With two washing stations, and an ongoing mission to assist farmers in coffee growth and production, the work of the Carsons has benefited over 3,000 families living in the area.
