ROB SAYS: This is our first Peaberry Rwandan coffee ever! The trader asked that these beans be kept aside in the milling process and a lot be created out of just PB beans (and very small regular ones). We think this has rendered a great result. This PB Gitega lot was the fruitiest Rwanda coffee we cupped in years!

Bernard Uwitije is the owner of Gitega washing station, he comes from the district of Nyamagabe that the washing station is located in. Bernard had previously been trading non-washed, ordinary coffee in the local market until 2015. He saw the potential for processing coffee to a fully washed state and of the local area’s ability to produce great cherry.
He built the Gitega mill last year and invested carefully in great infrastructure to produce fantastic coffees.
WE WILL START ROASTING THESE COFFEE AROUND MID JANUARY 2017
