A famous washing station in Kayanza, Burundi! Notes of Hibiscus, Red Grapes and Nougat.

/

Nemba is a very familiar washing station to the team here at Black Fox. Several of our roasting partners stock this coffee and showcase it around this time every year.

49th Parallel have this amazing ability to bring out the winey characteristics in coffees from Burundi/Rwanda by developing the roast in a way that balances sweetness and acidity really well.

Nemba is a washing station that's been open since the early 90's and it's located in the Kayanza Province of Burundi, bordering Rwanda. Just like Rwanda we mostly see Red Bourbon grown here. This is a variety known for giving us refined acidity and clean, concentrated sweetness.

The resulting cup is sweet, floral and vibrant. We get notes of Hibiscus and Red Grapes with lingering dried berry and nougat.
