BRIGHT POPS OF CITRUS, SUPER SWEET CUP. NOTES OF VANILLA, BROWN SUGAR, MARMALADE + COOKED PEACH
This coffee is produced by Aime Gahizis on his his farm in Rwanda. Workshop coffee in London have been working with him for the last 8 years and visit him at origin when they can.
Aime sees his work at Gitesi as much more than crop husbandry and coffee production and he does amazing work within his local community. His words (via Workshop) are below:
“The Gitesi Sector is the land of our grandfathers, it’s where even my father was born. But as you know, because of Rwandan history we grew up outside our country, and we came back in 1994 after the genocide and liberation war. Upon our return we have found in our land no one among our family members, all of them were killed in the genocide. We are now living and working with those who killed (or their children) our relatives. What motivates us is the reconciliation between the survivors of genocide of those who participated in genocide in our sector, now we are working together at the washing station, sharing everything in peace. Our plan is to continue changing the lives of our people at Gitesi both socially and economically.”
This coffee is roasted for filter.
