Why We Love It

“The Gatare is a rich, crisp and balanced cup. A hearty coffee with a bit of fruity brightness, the Gatare is a great gateway coffee for exploring other flavor profiles than what people are normally used to.” Raina Figueroa, Quality Control

About this coffee

This lot from the impeccable Gatare mill beautifully represents the ideal flavor profile of Burundi coffee — balanced, sweet and fruit-forward. Gatare is located in Kayanza, one of Burundi’s major growing areas, where everything from picking to hulling is done with care and attention. As the main crop and export of Burundi, the continued advancement in coffee production is crucial to Burundi’s future economic, political and social stability. Toby’s Estate sourcing in Burundi is done in conjunction with Cafe Imports, who is dedicated to developing sustainable, quality-focused programs.

Deep and complex with lush raisin and currant fruitiness, the Gatare is a deliciously comforting and sweet offering.
