At a very high altitude, Gitwe is surrounded by hills covered with green coffee trees, and the volcanic soil off the shores of Lake Kivu, make this coffee some of the finest in the country. 

Gitwe is a washing station located in Nyamasheke district in south western Rwanda, one of the regions with a high concentration of coffee trees and washing stations. At a very high altitude, Gitwe is surrounded by hills covered by green coffee trees, and the volcanic soil off the shores of Lake Kivu, make this coffee some of the finest in the country. There are 800 farmers in total who are delivering their coffee to the station.

Cherries delivered to Gitwe are pulped right away using a McKinnon Disc Pulper, fermented for 8-12 hours, and then sun-dried on raised beds for 10-15 days. Once processed, the coffee is then left to rest before being transported to the RTC warehouse in Kigali, where it is milled and prepped ready for shipment.
