Where on Earth is Burundi? Surrounded by Rwanda, Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi is a tiny, landlocked country in the Great Lakes region in Eastern Africa. Coffee is one of its chief exports, and no wonder. The warm, moist climate and high elevation is perfect for growing coffee. This particular bean comes from the Kayanza region of Burundi. The dark chocolate and nut flavors with a wonderful cedar aroma are intriguing and we look forward to more great coffee from Burundi.
