About Reframe Coffee Roasters:

About this coffee :

Gitega Hills Washing Station is owned and operated by Rwandan local producer Bernard Uwitije in southern Rwanda. The Gitega Hills Washing Station was the first of three stations acquired by Bernard’s company, Trapro Coffee, in 2016 and produces 450 tonnes of green beans each harvest that are supplied by hundreds of local small coffee farmers.

Bernard recognises the needs for those in his community and so he puts efforts towards improving those areas through his business. They provide monthly training to farmers in agricultural practices and coffee seedlings to help start those new to the coffee farming industry. Trapro works with all farmers in the community but focuses on women and youth who were unable to complete higher education, as a way of boosting the community from a sustainable long-term vision.

Farmers bring cherries to the station and hand sort and separate red cherries from under- and over-ripe cherries. Ripe cherries are then laid on raised beds and further sorted by hand. Cherries are turned regularly to maintain clarity and left on beds to dry until moisture reaches 10-12%. Drying typically takes 20-30 days  Beans are stored in dried cherry pods until ready for export

Natural processed coffee is pretty hard to come by from Africa, This Rwandan coffee has lots of ripe fruity notes. You'll get cherry aromatics paired with figs sweetness in the mid tone, finish with hints of tea finish.
