The Long Miles Coffee Project is responsible for some of our favorite coffees from Burundi and this washed Bourbon lot from Mutana is no exception. Grown by smallholder farmers along the edge of the Kibira Forest, the cherries were double-fermented then washed at the Heza Washing Station, and roasted in Helsinki, Finland. We tasted a refreshing citrus tea, hints of guava, and a silky smooth body.

About Good Life Coffee
We stumbled across Good Life Coffee while traveling in Finland and it felt like a sign from the universe. Founded by three champion baristas with a vision of opening an unpretentious cafe in Helsinki, their coffees can now be found in cafes all over Finland.
Why Nordic Coffees Stay Fresh Longer
What is Nordic roast coffee?
The ethos of Nordic style coffee is to highlight the unique, bright flavors of high quality, single origin coffee beans. A cup of Nordic style coffee should be sweet and vibrant, emphasizing fruit-forward tones and acidity, with no "roasty" flavors.
Super light, super bright
The darker a coffee is roasted, the more you'll taste "roasty" notes in the brew that will overpower any sweet, bright, or acidic notes. Nordic style roasts tend to be on the lighter end of a typical "light roast coffee", which allows for additional sweetness and brightness to be expressed in your brew.
That well-rested feeling
Having a very light roast profile means that this coffee needs additional time to “rest” after roasting. This resting period allows for the Carbon Dioxide (C02) from the roasting process to offgas from the coffee. Additional C02 in your coffee can prevent water from getting through to your coffee during brewing, leading to under extraction. The typical resting period for Nordic roasts is 10-14 days for filter, and 14+ days for espresso.
Putting the “best” in best before
One of the best things about Nordic style coffees is that “best before” date can be up to six months. By comparison, the average shelf life of a regular roasted coffee is up to six weeks after roasting. This timeline means we’re able to share coffees roasted in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland in our coffee collection, and they’ll arrive at your door perfectly rested and ready for brewing.
