Discover the beauty and culture of Burundi, a small country in the heart of Africa, known for its high-quality coffee whose taste and aroma are unforgettable. Burundi is also famous for its exceptional figures, such as Khadja Nin, a world-renowned artist whose music combines African, Arabic, and Western influences. Another tourist attraction of this fascinating country is the charming Turtle Mountains, offering incredible landscapes and rich wildlife.
Coffee plays a crucial role in the life of Burundians. They often drink it with pleasure, valuing its rich taste and deep aroma. In the coffee culture of Burundi, Arabica coffee is especially important, and it is highly regarded worldwide. An amusing story about coffee from this country tells of Therenca Nduwayezu, who accidentally discovered an excellent microclimate for coffee cultivation and made it his life's work. The secret of Burundi coffee is the skillful combination of traditional cultivation and processing methods with an innovative approach to quality.
Coffees from Burundi come from different regions, such as Ngozi, where the Gatukuza plantation is located, known for its exceptional achievements. Differences in taste between these regions are noticeable, although each of the Burundi coffees is characterized by a deep aroma and unique taste.
The Gatukuza plantation is located in the Gashikanwa commune, in the northern province of Ngozi, near the border with Rwanda. Coffee is grown here at an altitude of about 1650 meters above sea level, which contributes to its exceptional taste and aroma. Coffee from the Gatukuza region stands out against the whole country thanks to its unique microclimate and the care taken in cultivating and processing the beans.
The processing method of the offered coffee is washed, which gives a bright, clean, and distinctive taste in the cup.
The described coffee comes from the Gatukuza plantation in Burundi, which was created by Therenc Nduwayezu, combining the efforts of 600 small farmers from eight neighboring hills. This cooperation resulted in the construction of a coffee processing station in 2008. Gatukuza, which means "hill" in Kirundi, is located in the Gashikanwa commune, in the northern province of Ngozi, near the border with Rwanda. Coffee is grown at an altitude of 1650 meters above sea level, which contributes to the excellent quality of the beans. Therenc Nduwayezu and his Long Miles Coffee Project collaborators, Bena and Kristy Carlson, support the development of the plantation and the education of farmers to make Gatukuza coffee increasingly valued on the market. Gatukuza won the prestigious Cup Of Excellence Burundi title in 2019, with a score of 90.13 out of 100 possible, which indicates the highest quality of the offered coffee.
Flavor notes of the offered coffee
Burundi Gatukuza coffee is characterized by strong notes of red currant, honey, and rooibos. It is excellent for espresso, and for light roasting, it is worth trying in alternative methods such as Chemex or drip. For those starting their adventure with freshly roasted coffee, a medium roasting level is recommended, which provides the best balance between acidity and sweetness.
What to consider when ordering coffee?

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is fresh-roasted coffee?
A coffee is considered freshly roasted when a minimum of 24 hours from the roasting date has elapsed but no more than 14 days. Coffee after roasting needs 24 hours to rest-decompress, after 14 days from the date of roasting there is a loss of nearly 20% of aroma intensity as well as flavor.
Taste notes what is it?
It is the natural taste of coffee, obtained only by roasting coffee without any artificial additives or preservatives. The richness of coffee is precisely in the variety of coffee flavors coming from different regions of the world.
Which coffee roasting to choose?
If you prepare coffee with alternative methods (AeroPress, Drip, dripper, V60, Chemex...) be sure to try coffee in light roast.
If you are preparing coffee in a pressurized, pour-over or coffee maker, try coffee in medium roast; it is the most versatile coffee roast.
If you are preparing coffee in a pot, try a dark roast.
Coffee roasted light contains more caffeine than coffee roasted medium or dark. There are usually more noticeable notes of citrus, flowers.
If you're just getting started with fresh-roasted coffees or this particular coffee, it's best to try it in a medium roast for the first time. The medium roast is the most balanced roast between citrus acidity and pronounced chocolate, cocoa.
Dark roast, often associated with Italian roasting, is the exposure of cocoa, dark chocolate notes in coffee; less noticeable are fruit, floral notes. Dark-roasted coffee contains the least caffeine of all 3 roasts.
Which coffee roast has the most caffeine?
The amount of caffeine in coffee depends not only on the roasting method, but also on the type of coffee and how it is prepared. However, it is generally believed that light-roasted coffee contains slightly more caffeine than dark-roasted coffee.
Light-roasted coffee retains most of the natural flavors and aromas of the coffee bean, but has more oils and phenolic compounds, which are removed during further roasting. Therefore, in light-roasted coffee, caffeine remains in greater amounts.
What is dark coffee roasting?
Dark roasting is the process of roasting coffee beans, which leads to a very dark color and intense flavor. Coffee beans are roasted for a longer time and at a higher temperature than in light or medium roasting.
During dark roasting, the sugars in the coffee beans are caramelized and the acidity of the beans is almost completely removed. As a result, dark roast coffee has an intense, bitter flavor with notes of chocolate, caramel and nuts.
Dark roast coffee is popular in some regions, such as Italy, where dark roast espresso is often preferred. However, due to its intense taste and lack of subtle flavors, it is not the preferred roasting method for some coffee lovers.
What is a medium coffee roast?
Medium roasting (American, City Roast Medium, Regular Roast, City Roast, Breakfast Roast)is a coffee bean roasting process that lies between light and dark roasting. During medium roasting, the beans are roasted for about 10-15 minutes at a moderate temperature.
During this process, the sugars in the coffee beans begin to caramelize, which gives the coffee a sweet taste, and the acidity of the beans is gently reduced. The beans gain more complex aromas, including nutty, floral and fruity notes.
Medium roast coffee is the most commonly preferred coffee roast by coffee lovers, as it preserves the subtle flavors of the beans while adding some sweetness and fullness of flavor. Medium-roast coffee is also popular in many cafes and restaurants because it has a balanced flavor and aroma that is enjoyed by a wide range of consumers.
What is a light coffee roast?
Light roasting (Cinnamon, New England, Light Roast, Light City, Half City) is a process of roasting coffee beans that leads to a light color and delicate flavor. During light roasting, the beans are subjected to a short roasting process (about 5-7 minutes) at a relatively low temperature. During this process, the sugars in the coffee beans begin to caramelize, but not as intensely as in dark roasting. Coffee from light roasting has a pronounced acidity and delicate, fruity and floral aromas. Light roast coffees are often preferred by coffee lovers who appreciate subtle, complex flavors and aromas. Such coffees are especially popular in Scandinavian countries, where light-roasted coffee is treated like a luxury product and is drunk in smaller quantities, but with better quality. However, due to its sour taste and mildness, light-roasted coffee is not liked by all coffee lovers. Light roast coffee is popular among lovers of alternative coffee preparation.
How much coffee to buy in a coffee roaster's store?
The amount of coffee you should buy from a coffee roaster depends on your personal preferences and needs.
If you drink coffee every day and like freshly roasted coffee, it's a good idea to buy enough to stock up for 2 weeks. It is recommended that you buy enough to avoid losing freshness.
One way to determine the right amount of coffee to buy is to calculate the average amount of coffee consumed per day or per week. Based on this information, you can determine how much coffee beans you need to buy from a roaster to stock up for the right amount of time.
If you are using a pressurized coffee maker with a grinder to prepare your coffee, it is a good idea to buy such a package of coffee (75g.,250g.,500g.,1,000g.) so that you can pour all the coffee into the bean container.
It is also worth considering your taste preferences and choosing the coffee that best suits your tastes. The Sochaccy.co store offers 75g coffee samples for purchase, allowing you to try different flavors and choose your favorite type.
Ultimately, the amount of coffee you should buy from the roaster depends on your individual preferences and needs, but it's worth buying enough to avoid constantly going to the store for fresh coffee.
Which coffee is better to buy - bean or ground?
The decision between bean and ground coffee depends on several factors.
First, bean coffee usually has a longer shelf life than ground coffee because the coffee beans retain their freshness and aroma longer. Therefore, if you want to enjoy the freshest coffee, it is best to buy coffee beans and grind them just before brewing.
Secondly, ground coffee is more convenient and faster to prepare because it does not require grinding before brewing. Therefore, if you don't have time to grind coffee before each brewing, ground coffee may be more suitable for you.
Third, ground coffee offers more control over the brewing process and allows you to adjust the grind thickness to suit your taste preferences. With ground coffee, the grind thickness has already been determined, which can affect the taste of the coffee.
In conclusion, the decision between bean and ground coffee depends on your individual preferences and needs. If you want freshness and control over the brewing process, it's better to choose bean coffee and grind it just before brewing. However, if you are looking for convenience and speed, ground coffee may be more suitable for you.
