Roast Style: Classic

These will be fuller bodied coffees that exhibit more obvious roast-centric flavours, like caramelised sugar.

While bitterness has its place in every coffee, there is enough of that in each raw coffee without us ever feeling it is necessary to add more of that through the roast process. For this reason, even our darkest roasts are still very moderate medium roasts, relative to the full spectrum of coffee roasts available in the market today.

Our classic coffees will make great espresso-based beverages, and they're a good option for french press and moka-pot brewing, especially if you like your coffee with milk.

Roaster's Notes

Peaberry (PB) lots are a roaster's dream. To dispel a common misconception - peaberry is not a coffee variety but a pleasantly surprising anomaly that occurs. They develop in a fascinating way. While most coffee cherries contain two flat-sided beans nestled together, peaberries surprise us with a single, round bean.

During the grading process, the peaberries are carefully separated using specific screen sizes. The exact percentage of peaberry coffee in each harvest can vary quite a bit. On average, they make up anywhere between 5% to 10% of the total coffee yield. Their little pearled-shape lends itself to more uniform roasts and contributes to an overall more pleasant and consistent brewing experience.

Gitesi is a privately owned washing station, established by father and son, Alexis and Aime Gahizi. Built in 2005, it began processing coffee the following year. Despite initial struggles, they managed to turn a profit in 2010, transforming Gitesi into the sustainable business it is today.

The washing station has fostered strong relationships with over 1,800 local coffee farmers who deliver their cherries for processing. These farmers, mostly small family-owned operations, meticulously care for their plants and personally hand-pick the cherries. They operate a coffee nursery with 15,000 to 50,000 trees, freely distributed to farmers to expand their coffee-growing activities, going beyond coffee processing and actively supporting the local community.
