An expressive coffee, with sticky, fruited sweetness that's potent to say the least; canned plum, brown rice syrup, mulled berries, strawberry milk powder and banana bread.

Nemba Station is a coffee cherry collection and processing site located in Kayanza, Burundi's northern province that borders neighboring Rwanda. Farmers from surrounding "collines", or hill tops, deliver their harvest in whole cherry at the Nemba site, where it is then wet processed and then dried. Kayanza Province itself sits at 1800 meters above sea level, and the farms from the 15 hill tops that serve the Nemba Station top out at over 2000 meters. Farmers grow mostly older bourbon types, the original coffee cultivar introduced to the area in the 1930s by Catholic monks traveling from the island of Reunion. Nemba has been around since the early 1990s, and has won several awards for their coffee, including 1st place in 2015 Cup of Excellence competition and best of Burundi in 2016, no small task. Nemba roasts easily, very little roast color variance as you move from yellowing, to browning, and onto first crack. It helps that the sort is so good, with little to no trace of underripe coffee in the few hundred grams of coffee that we roasted.

Nemba is an expressive coffee that offers the complexity that only a dry process coffee can deliver. The dry fragrance has a smell of strawberry fruit leather, a sticky, fruited sweetness that's potent to say the least. This is a really clean smelling natural process coffee, the wet aroma showing loads of red berry, cocoa-like smells and something like Strawberry milk powder. The cup has restrained acidity, but the fruited character is quite the opposite. City roasting offers flavors of stewed fruits and rustic sweeteners like palm sugar and brown rice syrup. The fruited flavors are most vivid when the coffee cools down some, but are apparent from the get go. I pick up on aspects of canned plum, mulled berries and fresh baked banana bread. The finish isn't perfect, but the slight papery note you may taste is wiped away by a blueberry accent that lingers in the long finish. At Full City, dark berry notes are buttressed by deep flavors of rustic cocoa, an intoxicating combination.
