Finding a delicious Burundi coffee is a rare treat, and one that Necessary are aiming to make a little more accessible. They've highlighted flavors of berries and molasses in this Single Origin for everyday drinkers to enjoy, not just for the barista competitions. (Oh yeah, that's a thing ;).

We've spent a fair time in Burundi, and love the beautiful people, culture and coffee that exists there. It still ranks amongst the poorest nations in the world however, especially for coffee farmers. All the more reason to partner up with a coffee producer that's paying more to farmers than anyone else in Burundi, while also providing valuable agronomic support! This washed coffee leads with berries and molasses, perfect for a fruit-driven drip or filter brew.
They say that one question was asked over and over by farmers and exporters during their travels: "What will it take for you to buy more of my crop?" The answer was, this! A roastery aiming to bridge the gap between prices paid for ultra-premium boutique lots and the vast majority of coffee from any given harvest. By doing so, Necessary Coffee are making good quality approachable for everyday enjoyment, and ensuring viable business for producers.
