On June 16 we will host a coffee tasting event with local roasters, Stamp Act Coffee. Two cupping workshops will take place on that Saturday and will feature eight Burundian coffees. All proceeds from this event will support Long Miles’ reforestation project, “Trees for Kibiria.”
These Burundian coffees have just recently landed in the States and showcase an amazing array of aromas and flavors. Ticket prices to join the cupping class are $20/ea and include a 12 oz. package of Long Miles Burundi coffee roasted by Stamp Act Coffee.
Long Miles Coffee Project began five years ago with a focus on creating operational systems and tools for Burundi farmers allowing them to produce better quality coffee for a larger market.
Burundi is nestled between Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo in East Africa. The goal for “Trees for Kibira” is to plant 15,000 seedling trees in Burundi’s Kibira National Forest. This will bring new life to the region, help revitalize local soil and with the support of a Tree Scouts program, empower the community with the skills to care for the indigenous Kibira Forest for generations to come.
Post Event Reception to follow at Marseille from 4:30 – 6:30p.
