This coffee bean comes from the highlands of Burundi via Deborah Ntawigiria and Consolta Ndayishimiye of Izere Coffee in Ottawa. The coffee cherries are handpicked and processed at local washing stations in Burundi where they are double washed and double fermented. This unique processing method results in very clean, bright flavour profiles and is a typical processing technique used in both Burundi and Rwanda.

Izere Coffee works directly with small-holder coffee farmers and cooperatives in Burundi. As a women-owned business, Izere also prioritizes the employment of local women in the leadership of their facilities and operations in Burundi.

Hot tip! You can buy our Burundi coffee as a dark roast (Big Heart) and a light roast (Sunshine) together in our Izere Pack and taste the difference in the roasting of this bean!


This dark roast from Burundi, known as the heart of Africa, is big on flavour! Big Heart has a balanced acidity and mild sweetness. The chocolate flavours are balanced by a touch of acidity that reminds us of ripe cherries.
