The region where this lot is produced is called Gatara Commune and is located in the Kayanza Provence. Gatara Commune is particularly known for their cattle production and, in most cases, coffee is more of a secondary crop. After each farmers’ cherries have been selected, weighed and recorded, these Bourbon coffee cherries are laid out in a single layer on traditional African raised beds to dry in its whole fruit. The cherries are then hand-sorted for color, ripeness and insect damage by a team of pickers. Expect boozey rum and raisin, apricot sweetness with a soft, delicate finish.

Five Senses feels a strong sense of shared values around excellent quality coffee and social impact with the Long Miles crew.
