Single Origin Small Batch
Gitesi Washing Station, Rwanda
We are so excited to bring back the very first Small Batch we released back in 2017!! ! The OG Small Batch.
Alexis Gahizi started Gitesi Washing Station in 2005 with his son Aime who is an agronomist and a civil engineer, two valuable skills for a coffee producer. They worked tirelessly to get the washing station open, which took nearly five years. Two years later, they won the Rwanda Cup of Excellence, and continue to consistently produce competition level coffees.
Today, they buy coffee from 1,830 different farmers from nearby including the KOPAKIKA association, a group of 160 women farmers. They process and sort the coffees, which are all the Bourbon variety, a very common variety in Rwanda.
Try it as a pour over and you might taste spiced black tea, mandarin, and honey.
