    The Kanovera Coop is located in the Ntamba village in the Commune of Musigati, which is located in the Bubanza Province near the border of Rwanda. This Coop produces 960 bags of green coffee a year. Kanovera is one of eleven sub-coops of COCOCA, an association of coffee growers in Burundi which was created in 2009. As of 2015, the Coop consists of 160 members. The cherries that are collected are processed by the fully-washed method which enables the coffee to feature a pronounced acidity and clean profile. This is the first time coffee from this lot is Fair Trade certified.

    Cupping Notes: Plum, Rhubarb, Black Tea

    Fine Ground: At a fine grind, coffee should be soft to the touch – slightly finer than granulated sugar.

    Espresso: Great espresso requires skill, patience and quality equipment. Without these things, and a proper grind, espresso can be thin and weak or over extracted and clog in the portafilter. The perfect grind is essential to reaching espresso nirvana; an intensely rich and creamy extraction with thick crema and well rounded flavor.
    Grind: Fine/Very Fine

    Aeropress: The Aeropress is a quick and efficient way to make flavorful, rich coffee with low acidity and bitterness. With specially designed micro-filter technology the Aeropress consistently provides some of the best coffee in just under 20 seconds.
    Grind: Fine/Medium

    Medium Ground: At a medium grind, coffee should be gritty like sand with no considerably large pieces.

    Auto Drip Pot: The Auto Drip style coffee maker is an efficient and hassle-free way to make a fresh pot. With the correct grind and water to coffee ratio, it IS possible to get a great cup of coffee using this method.
    Grind: Medium

    Chemex: The Chemex is an elegant brewing device that extracts only the purest, most flavorful coffee without any bitterness or sediment. Because of the incredible functionality and design, the Chemex, paired with Chemex Bonded Filters, create a pure coffee experience unlike any other.
    Grind: Medium/Coarse

    Coarse Ground: At a coarse grind, coffee is separated into large fragments similar to grained kosher salt.

    French Press: The French Press is a classic and easy way to prepare decadent and smooth coffee and can easily be converted to brew cold coffee. The coffee grounds and water are separated by a fine mesh plunger leaving only fresh brewed coffee after 5 short minutes.
    Grind: Coarse

    Toddy Cold Brew: The Toddy Cold Brew system is a simple and consistent way to extract a delicious and low-acid brew. Oils and fatty acids that would normally settle into hot coffee are eliminated leaving you with a perfectly balanced and smooth cup of iced coffee.
    Grind: Coarse

    Our Favorite African Coffee

    My wife and I rarely agree but this is our new favorite African coffee. We tried a lot of the coffees on the site using the sample packs. We choose Papua New Guinea as our top choice and brew it in a French press. We will be adding this wonderful coffee to our rotation.

    This is a delicious Medium Roast. It brews well in a French Press and is very pleasing to smell and taste.

    This coffee has a delicious aroma. When I opened the bag, I knew that I was about to have a rare treat. My first sip was so very good. A plum flavor is noticeable but, not too intense. It has a great feel on my tongue and a delightfully lingering aftertaste.


    Good for any brew method

    I have used this Burundi as a pour over, in my French Press, as well as drip. The flavor is good no matter which I use. I drink my coffee black; this one hits the spot.


    Not for me.....

    After a number of hits with different coffees from FRC, this one is a miss, I don't care for the flavor at all; when I saw the cupping notes included rhubarb, that should have been a giveaway. Oh well.
