Hailing from Burundi, our very first coffee boasts some of its origin's signature qualities: a medium body, bright fruitiness and a chocolatey finish. This is the perfect coffee to begin your day. The bright, citrus notes will wake you up to every divine possibility that awaits you, and inspire you to shine your light just as bright as this cup.
Moreover, this coffee was produced, exported, imported, and sourced by Black women. Imported by Phyllis Johnson of BD Imports, this coffee was produced by Angéle Ciza, the owner and operator of Kalico SA, the only woman-owned coffee production, processing and exporting operation in Burundi. This coffee has been certified by the International Women's Coffee Alliance, signifying the empowerment of the women who had a hand in its cultivation.
When you drink this coffee, you're not only supporting Black-woman owned businesses, but you're supporting the entire enterprise of Black women who are pursuing their goals, living their passions, and serving their communities. Being the light.
