Burundi Specialty Coffee
Prepare to be surprised
Burundi has been the coffee industry's best kept secret for more than a decade.
Carlini Coffee were one of the first roasters in Australia to use specialty grade Burundi coffees back in 2010.
As a small producer of fine quality arabica, Burundi farmers have been learning and improving their crop management every year.
With small holding, farmers can take better care of their crops.
Like most African coffees, Burundi has a rich intensity and complexity that can easily match with Rwanda, Kenya, Ethiopia or Tanzania.
A premium coffee for enthusiasts seeking a rewarding cup.

How we roast your coffee
20 years of roasting every weekday, 51 weeks a year. A lot of batches and a level of experience unmatched in the Australian coffee market.
The same person who roasted that very first batch is exactly the same person that roasts every single batch today. Another feature rarely matched for brands our size.
Roasting coffee has never been about freaky talent or secrets passed down through generations. Nope, to roast and understand the roasting process, it is all about practice, practice and more practice. There are no shortcuts or innovative tools and systems to help jump ahead of the competition.
It's how we can produce the best tasting and most consistent coffee in Australia. Match that with superior quality ingredients and the most advanced infrastructure, mature processes and you have the solution for great tasting coffee.
We roast to target sweetness, acidity, flavor, body and finish to generate the best possible balance across all those competing elements.
Our espresso style is a medium roast suitable for premium cafes that care about quality. Filter style roasts are lighter to meet the demands of modern alternative brewing methods to retain fruit-forward complexity.
What is most important?
Answer is they all are. It didn't take a pandemic to learn why speed, freshness, quality and value are all equally important.
Heck no. We worked that out way back in 2007 as the original pioneer of online premium quality fresh roasted coffees to Australian coffee lovers.
We get it, running out of coffee is a nightmare scenario nobody wishes to experience.
With 16 years and almost 1 million successful parcel deliveries under our belts, we know a thing or two about what it takes to run a high performance and high speed coffee supply operation.
To ensure our coffees are crazy fresh, barely hours old when they ship out the door, it requires significant scale and resources working rapidly to roast, pack, label, grind, parcel and ship.
It's an eco-system we have continued to build and optimize for 16 years, measuring our performance in minutes, not hours and certainly not days like some of our competitors.
Nobody can guarantee or predict delivery timeframes, but we can assure you of our commitment to ship fresh roasted coffees that have been prepared to precise quality standards at a competitive price and always processed with a critical sense of urgency.
Best coffee we have ever drank. Bravo
Worked so well for us either in milk or without. Very flexible coffee and taste was spot on.
Arrived quickly, super fresh and the taste was heavenly.
After a few mishaps buying coffees elsewhere, these guys know their stuff. Amazing coffee.
Both of us think this is the best kept Secret in Australia. Excellent coffee. Bravo
