Tasting Note This coffee is complex and very aromatic, with a brilliant acidiay and a full body. First, it reveals intense notes of chocolate and caramel,, but gradually falls towards more floral notes, creating a power mouth feel.

Product description

This is our first year working with the Gisheke washing station, located in the Nyamasheke District, overlooking vast stretches of Lake Kivu and Idjwi Island, which is part of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Almost 40% of the cherries received at Gisheke arrives by boat from Bushungwe Island, pictured below. All the cherry produced on these islands is processed

exclusively by the station. Currently, the location is very hard to access, as it can only be reached by boat, whilst the roads to the station are built. The station is focussed on the production of washed and natural coffees, and we are pleased to offer some fantastic coffees from this first season of working together. The station itself is located at 1650MASL and sources coffee as high up as 1850 MASL. It has a total of 69 drying tables, which are managed by 3 fulltime staff and 134 casual staff. Including the land surrounding Gisheke, and the islands which grow coffee nearby, this station represents the production of 787 farmers in the region this year.
