The Long Miles project has helped transform Burundi’s specialty coffee industry, connecting roasters with incredible producers in hard-to-reach areas. Bukeye was the first washing station that they built, located in the hill community of Gaharo, and despite a low-yield year blighted by poor weather, this washed Bourbon lot is a florally fragrant gem.

Every coffee we share has been tasted and recommended by our expert Tasting Panel who have years of experience in specialty coffee. We cast a wide net, trying hundreds of coffees, keeping an open mind to new regions, processes, and roasters, and going through many rounds of cupping. If there was an easier way of choosing each coffee, we wouldn’t want to do it. For exclusive weekly coffee suggestions from our panel, join Fellow Drops!
There’s a reason people drive hundreds of miles to Nelsonville, Wisconsin (pop. 200) for a cup of coffee. The remote roaster was one of the first we shared on Fellow Drops and they continue to impress us with their outstanding coffees.
