Review: "Jeanine Niyonzima-Aroian, the founder of JNP Coffees, is without a doubt one of the most influential individuals in Burundi coffee today. After a few years marketing Burundi coffees stateside for friends and family, Jeanine realized she had every reason to lead the business, and JNP Coffee was born. JNP Coffee is highly focused on women’s empowerment, and along with a few local women’s rights advocates, formulated the Burundi chapter of the International Women’s Coffee Alliance. Producer groups of women and men alike, such as the group that produced this particular coffee, can qualify for JNP’s new “DushimeTM” program, which delivers the same kind of post-harvest premiums as IWCA has since 2013. On top of competitive pricing, JNP coffee also returns second payments to farmers and investing in opportunities for education and community building. The wet mill that produced this coffee was built in 2018, entirely with the savings of women farmers who had long wanted a processing site of their own for quality assurance. The group of farmers behind this coffee, comprised of both women and men, refer to themselves as Turihamwe Turashobora in Kirundi, which translates to “Together We Can!’’. The wet mill and quality team is entirely women-led and works closely with JNP’s trained Q Graders on best quality practices and lot curation. Fully washed processing for members of the Turihamwe Turashobora group is as detailed as anywhere in Burundi where the best coffees are produced. Cherry is floated for density and visible defects prior to depulping and fermentation. After fermentation is complete the wet parchment is sorted by density in concrete washing channels. Drying takes place at first under shade, and then in open air with the parchment piled into pyramids, which are flattened and re-shaped each day as a form of incremental air exposure to slowly and evenly dry the coffee and lock in the final moisture." - Royal Coffee
The passion and care taken in producing this coffee is evident at first sight. The green beans look very consistent and clean with a much lower than average number of defects. That along with the washed processing of the bean make it an absolute dream to roast. It takes heat well and evenly, making it perfect for just about any style of roasting. We like it best at around City + (light-medium) but you could readily take it just into second crack if you preferred, though you'd miss some of the subtle character this coffee has to offer. It's very balanced, clean and bright with delicate sweetness and a medium to full body. Perfect for an iced coffee on a warm spring afternoon! Look for notes of apple cider, caramel, peach and lemongrass.
