    Roaster’s Notes
    Tastes like apple pie & maple donuts. Jeanine Niyonzima-Aroian, the founder of JNP Coffees, has spent her career empowering the lives of women coffee producers in Burundi. Ubuto translates to “young," the name is a reflection of the new partnership between JNP and Karuzi Province, as well as the age of the coffee trees themselves, which among this group are only a few harvests old.
