Gito Natural

Rwanda

Free shipping for orders over £25! We roast Monday to Friday. Order before 10am for same-day dispatch.

For this coffee, the cherries are sorted and cleaned, then laid out evenly across raised beds, providing consistent airflow, and height away to prevent moisture and animals from coming into contact with the cherries. The cherries are dried in the sun for 30 days, turned constantly when the sun is high and covered during the night. Once the cherries have dried, the now dried outer fruit is removed, and the coffee beans are ready to be shipped to us for roasting!

Sweet and juicy, with a touch of spice; like a cherry cola on a hot day!

Gito means ‘tiny’ in Kinyarwanda. Traditionally, these beans were considered to be of a lesser quality than others and sold on the commodity market simply due to their small screen size. However, with careful screening and sorting based on the density of the beans instead of the size, something special was found. The Gito Blend is thus made up of the higher density beans of 13-14 screen size of coffee sourced from 3 different washing stations - Kilimbi, Rugali, Gisheke.
