Pista Café - Munyinya

Pista Café - Munyinya


This delicate and fruity coffee tastes of pear and honey, on a floral finish reminiscent of jasmine.

For the fourth consecutive year, we are very happy to present a coffee produced by our friends from Long Miles Coffee Project, in Burundi. This year we chose Munyinya, a café from the very first hill that Ben and Kristy Carslon, the founders, worked with on their project. Munyinya is located in the Muramvya region, in the heart of Burundi. 

Here are some words from the founders: “Munyinya was the first hill that made us realize that Burundian coffee had the potential to produce incredible microlots. Munyinya is just beyond the border with the commune named Bukeye. The dirt road that winds up the hill is on the side of the mountains and offers cinematic views of the valleys below. Coffee trees line the slopes that lead to the small town centre. Despite its beauty, it is a hill that we almost abandoned because year after year farmers continued to deliver poor quality cherries. But, when a hill holds as strong as Munyinya, we have to roll up our sleeves and devote our efforts to it day after day.’
