Burundi Bujumbura Coffee Competition – A 2011 Trip

Before there was a Burundi Cup of Excellence there was something else called the Prestige Cup. I went, I cupped, I swam in the pool.

It’s weird for me to fly a long way, visit a beautiful coffee-producing country, and not visit a coffee farm. Well, this trip was out-of-season for the coffee harvest. It was a cupping competition, which happens after all the coffee is off the trees and in the dry mill generally.

So my camera kept me amused and the coffee tasting event was solid. Here are some pictures from this 2011 event! -Thompson
