Gitega Hills Washing Station works with 1500 small holders who harvest at an altitude of 1600-1900 meters. Processing is done with eco-pulpers, which is followed by 8-20 hours of dry fermentation before the coffees are soaked for another 12-48 hours. This creates the great flavour profile of this coffee: Milk chocolate, sugar cane, cherry, orange blossom and nutmeg. Our particular lot is very sweet with perfume aromas. 

Bernhard Uwitije sets examples with environmentally friendly processing methods such as worm tea, organic pulp and fertilizers. He also trains all farmers in groups, offers loans, and pays schooling fees. Gitega only started in 2015 and is already a benchmark for quality processing.
