From Fuglen:

"This is our second year purchasing coffee from The Long Miles Coffee project with help from Osito. Long Miles Coffee was founded by Ben and Kristy Carlson in 2011 who moved their whole family to Burundi. Long Miles aims to create traceable micro-lots that yield consistently great coffees while improving the livelihoods of the smallholder farmers who grow them.

Bukeye is the name of the first washing station built by Long Miles and is located in the village of Bukeye in the Kayanza province. During the harvest, which lasts from April - June, coffee cherries are delivered from farms surrounding the station and undergo hand sorting and flotation upon arrival to remove defects.

Once sorted, the cherries are pulped before being dry fermented for around 12 hours. After this, the beans are rinsed and then soaked in fresh water for 4-6 hours. Finally the beans are dried on raised beds for between 16-20 days slow drying until they reach a desired moisture content of 10.5 %

We buy this coffee from The Long Miles Project through Osito."
