Nkonge Hill, Natural
Zesty balance of banana, strawberry & orange juice.
Life has a different pace on Nkonge Hill. There is a stillness on the hill that is hard to find anywhere else in Burundi. A winding six-kilometre walk down to the Heza Washing Station, Nkonge Hill produces a unique coffee full of impact. Dirt roads cut into the hill’s steep slopes, revealing panoramic views of banana trees and lush tea plantations. Natural springs find their way out of the hill, keeping its soils well watered. Nkonge’s high elevation fosters a harder, slower-growing coffee bean. This slow growth coupled with the nutrient-rich soil produces coffees, that are not only delicious but are improving the lives of coffee growers in these remote areas of Burundi. This kind of life-changing impact is exactly why Five Senses is so passionate about our relationship with Long Miles Coffee. In the cup, you can expect a zesty balance of banana, strawberry & orange juice.
