This coffee dances with the morning sun
Each building block in a coffee’s journey is constructive. It potentially amplifies those principal flavours. From picking, to processing, to roast, our luxurious Rwandan natural scores remarkably high in all areas. A mature, deep, berry like acidity, paired with an elegant and rich dark chocolate sweetness makes for a special moment to savour.

At origin, the coffee is handled and processed meticulously, making everything about it feel lavish, from the mouthfeel reminiscent of ripe fruit, to the extravagant chocolate truffle lingering in the finish. We have sculpted a roast style that excites these nuances. All for a taste that is both precious and unforgettable.

Flavour notes Dates, nougat & gummy bears

The station
Father and son team: Alexis and Aime Gahizi
By the idyllic shores of Rwanda’s largest lake, Kivu, live the Gahizi family. Their washing station draws cherries from around 1800 local farmers who both sort then deliver to the station. Through premium payment schemes for quality, relationships are strong between the farmers and local communities, with Gitesi as a hub helping support the supply chain for this exceptional cherry.

Aime’s engineering skills paved the way for a comprehensive water purification system at the station. Pair this with the cool climate, and the fermentation process is expertly undertaken, a principal factor in these outlandishly clean, funky, mature flavours.
Sourcing
Impact at Gitesi
Gitesi as a washing station works directly with the community on various topics such as coffee training, sustainability, and financial support. Giving back in this way ensures premiums stay high, improves the quality of the coffee, and creates a support system within the community. Certified by Rainforest Alliance and CAFÉ Practices, Gitesi also produce natural and organic fertiliser with the coffee pulp. Take a peek below to see some of the wonderful work they do:

• A coffee nursery between 15,000 and 50,000 coffee trees (depending on the needs) which are distributed to coffee farmers at no cost to the farmer.
• A bonus to farmers at the end of each season based on performance.
• Distribution of pumps and other farming materials to local farmers.
• Distribution of cows to local farmers every year to provide an alternative income stream, and a source of organic fertiliser. The first-born calf to each of these cows is then given to another farmer. This helps to distribute more cows to more farmers and unifies the farming community.
• Health insurance for 100 coffee farmers (poor families) every year.
• Training for farmers of coffee and other crops on financial and agricultural management.
