In love with Burundi
I am halfway through my trip, and I have been overwhelmed by the beauty of these two countries… and quite busy with meetings and trips to the field to meet with producers… so I leave you with some glimpses from the last few days….
this is how green coffee looks if it has been processed by the farmer by hand – notice the lack of uniformity in the color – it is usually considered a lower grade… delicious Burundian coffee from a wonderful cafe in downtown Bujumbura, Cafe Gourmand… Burundi’s country side the team out in the field visiting producers and farms a coffee farmSomeone discovered the selfie almost time to harvest!Pest in the coffee leaf
We visited a farmer
coffee flower, it smells delicious… a light jasmin, or orange blossom Bujumbura from the hills with Lake Tanganyika and the DRC on the other side
