Gitesi is a privately-owned washing station, established and operated by a father and son team, Alexis and Aime Gahizi.
The Gahizi family is originally from the Karongi region and they have been growing coffee in this region for generations. They have very strong relationships with the community surrounding the washing station, and today there are over 1,800 coffee farmers who deliver and sell coffee cherries to Gitesi Coffee Washing Station.
We find coffee from this part of Rwanda to be exceptional, and the care and attention that goes into coffee from Gitesi elevates it even further. This particular lot has great concentration and structure, with a beautiful balance between sweetness and defining acidity.
