This coffee is the result of the dream of the Ben Carlson family, a family "passionate about producing amazing coffee and caring for the well-being of the coffee farmers who grow it." Their Long Miles Coffee Project is helping build a strong coffee sector in one of the poorest countries in the world. Since moving to Burundi and building a mill, Long Miles coffees have been a finalist in their national competitions. To learn more, click here.
After each farmer’s cherries have been selected, weighed and their contribution recorded, this Bourbon coffee is laid out in a single layer on traditional African raised beds to dry in its whole fruit. The cherries are then meticulously hand-sorted for color, ripeness and insect damage by a team of pickers. The drying cherries are rotated continuously throughout the day and covered when the sun’s rays are too intense, when it’s raining and overnight. Commitment to the perfect moisture level (10-11%) means coffee spends 20-30 days slow drying, depending on the weather conditions, soaking up as much of the hot East African sun as possible. Farmer Premiums Bonuses are paid to farming families in the form of a second payment at the end of the export year- before the next harvest season opens.
Exotic, adventurous, and exceptional.
