Our first-ever Small Planes release came from Ben & Kristy Carlson's Long Miles Coffee Project; last year we featured a bourbon-selection in washed and honey process; this year we're thrilled to offer a deliciously juicy washed bourbon selection! This coffee comes from Nkonge Colline, French for 'hill', and the second Long Miles washing station, called Heza.

We're loving a silky mouthfeel, bright apricot notes, and hints of raspberry jam. The warming spices and dark brown sugar of a gingersnap cookie support those juicy fruits. Even as a filter coffee, Nkonge brings the richness of Burundian coffees, apparent especially as it cools into a clean and tea-like finish.
