The Gitega Hill’s washing station is located in the Nyamagabe District of the southern province and is located very close to Nyungwe Forest and the traced source of the Nile River.
The average farm supplying to Gitega is at an altitude around 1,650m, and that high altitude along with the volcanic soil of the area make Gitega an excellent location for high quality processing.
Cherries delivered to the Gitega Hills station are washed and any floaters are 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.
Tasting notes of jasmine, bergamot and apple.
