Our new coffee from Rwanda is a pristine and bright cup. Flavor- wise it’s certainly a change of pace from our current line-up and offers some classic Rwandan bourbon sweetness. Light in body with flavors of black tea, lemon, and a cardamom accented finish.

WHOLE BEAN COFFEE

From our importer Coffee Shrub:

Gitesi is one of my favorite sites in Rwanda. Not only is it located in a beautiful valley, but the washing station looked clean, well-organized, and the leaders seemed motivated and competent. I had already cupped quite a few day lots (wet-process batches from coffee cherry received in a single day), and I knew the coffee was really good. The Gitesi site is at 1740 meters, actually one of the lower areas surrounded by high ridges ranging up to 2000 meters, where coffee is grown. 1,830 coffee farmers in the area supply Gitesi with cherries each year. The station fosters a relationship with the farmers by paying an additional dividend at the end of each season based on performance. Gitesi was started in 2005 and has been building capacity each year. Like much of Rwanda, the coffee is Bourbon variety. We "built" this lot by looking at all their day lot batches and combining the best ones. We found some excellent process batches from the middle harvest. And we're not the only ones noticing: Gitesi won COE a few years back and continues to produce competition level coffees.
