Rwanda Gitega Filter Coffee

The Gitega Hill’s washing station is located in the Nyamagabe District of the southern province, close to Nyungwe Forest.

Bernard Uwitije, a native of the area, had been trading non washed ordinary coffee up until 2015, when he realized the potential for fully washed specialty grade coffee. Despite being his first time in processing fully washed coffee, he could count on his overall experience and knowledge. He equipped the station with a 1500kg Penagos machine, fermentation tanks and raised drying beds. These investments have enabled a very high quality product. 

The average farm supplying to Gitega is at an altitude of around 1650m, and that high altitude along with the volcanic soil of the area make Gitega an excellent location for high quality processing. 

The Miko farms sit between 1700 – 1900m and have been consistent with strong yield and higher than average cup scores. The cherries are delivered to the Gitega Hills station and then floated and separated to remove any defective cherries. The coffee is then placed on the raised African beds at about 2cm of thickness where it is dried for up to 30 days with regular turning each hour and covering during night time.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
