Burundi, Cup of Excellence 2012

I was also lucky enough to be able to attend the 1st Burundi Cup of Excellence, another great opportunity to explore an origin I don’t often see samples of. Held in Bujumbura, it was a week of wonderful people and gorgeous landscapes, and in spite of the potato problem; some really tasty coffee.
