Gitesi is a washing station in Rwanda owned and operated by Alexis & Aime Gahizi, a father-and-son team of coffee professionals. They first began processing coffee at the station in 2005, and have steadily increased the volume and quality of their lots as their business has grown. Gitesi station receives coffee from ~1800 small-holder farmers in the area. Competition for cherry in the region is high - so Gitesi has implemented many programs to secure a consistent supply of the highest quality cherry available, including a free coffee plant nursery, available health insurance & organic fertilizer for farmers, and a bonus payment structure based on quality and yield at the end of each season. In this case, the lot is both farmed and produced by Aime, all cherry originating from their own farm. Located right next to the washing station.

Gitesi coffees are always complex and this one does not disappoint! We are tasting layers of red currant, lavender syrup, strawberry jam and orange zest with a floral finish. Complex, right? Get brewing!
