THE DREAM...

The Long Miles Coffee Project is a dream coffee project created by Americans Ben and Kristy Carlson to facilitate meaningful and direct relationships between coffee roasters and coffee farmers in the poorest country in the world, Burundi.  They work tirelessly against a system of oppression in Burundi, battling not only for coffee quality but also for the quality of farmers’ lives. LMCP fits perfectly with our mission at Giv where we seek to roast excellent coffees and support the well being of the farmers that produce those coffees through the premiums we pay.

When I spoke with Ben this past April about Nkonge Hill he said, “It is our model hill.  The individual farms are run so well and the quality is always top notch.” We can’t agree more with this fully washed coffee from Nkonge.  It has delicious dark berry notes that are super juicy and clean.
