Gitwe - 1

It's been a while, so let's hear it for Gitwe, the first showcase from Rwanda this year! Sweet and sticky like homemade toffee crisp combined with the perfect amount of rise-and-shine zest, this ray of warm, friendly sunshine is a must-taste. Owned by the Rwanda Trading Company, Gitwe Washing Station is located high in the Nyamasheke district. Surrounded by rolling hills covered with rich volcanic soils from Lake Kivu, coffee trees flourish, one of the many reasons Nyamasheke offers some of the finest coffee in the country. Taking in cherry from roughly 800 farmers during the harvest season, Gitwe focuses on producing high-quality, fully washed speciality grade coffee, and the proof is in the pudding. Clean, balanced and wonderfully fruity, the year on year quality from Gitwe and its producer partners is remarkable. A favourite on our list, this lot is simply delicious.
