We have been captivated by Long Miles Coffee Project for a while, so naturally, we are thrilled to finally collaborate with them. Since 2011, Long Miles has achieved renown for their incredible work in Burundi. Their persistent attention to quality, traceability, and deep connection with the local farmers and land have enabled countless successes for all involved - and now you get to enjoy the fruits of their labor with this exquisite Bourbon micro lot, "Mikuba 7 Natural Process".


Bourbon is the most famous of the Bourbon-descended varieties. It is a tall variety characterized by relatively low production, susceptibility to the major diseases, and excellent cup quality. French missionaries introduced Bourbon from Yemen to Bourbon Island (now La Réunion)—giving it the name it has today—in the early 1700s. Until the mid-19th century, Bourbon did not leave the island. But beginning in the mid-1800s, the variety spread to new parts of the world as the missionaries moved to establish footholds in Africa and the Americas. The Bourbon variety was introduced to Brazil around 1860, and from there rapidly spread north into other parts of South and Central America, where it is still cultivated today. Here it became mixed with other Bourbon-related varieties, introduced from India as well as Ethiopian landraces. Nowadays, there are many
Bourbon-like varieties found in East Africa, but none exactly match the distinct Bourbon variety that can be found in Latin America. Today in Latin America, Bourbon itself has largely been replaced by varieties that descend from it (notably including Caturra, Catuai, and Mundo Novo), although Bourbon itself it is still cultivated in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Peru.

Process details

To fully understand how Long Miles Coffee Project process their coffees, we need to first mention their program called “THE SCOUTS”
Prosper is one of the Coffee Scouts working alongside the coffee farming families on Mikuba hill, teaching them how to take care of their coffee trees and produce quality coffee. He has been empowering farmers with sustainable farming practices, helping them to understand the importance of planting shade trees, green manures and to seasonally mulch their land and prune the coffee trees. During coffee harvest, he stands side by side with farmers, guiding them through the cherry-picking process. He has also taught farmers how to spot and catch antestia bugs, the colorful bugs thought to be behind the potato taste defect.

Natural Process
Freshly harvested cherries are delivered by coffee farmers to the Long Miles Coffee Washing Station (Heza Station for Mikuba Hill), then floated and hand-sorted for ripeness upon arrival.Then taken straight to the drying tables. The whole coffee cherry spends between twenty-five to thirty days drying in its own skin, slowly turning from a deep red to a prune-like purple-black once its fully dry and at the preferred 10.5% moisture level.
