Gatare – one of the biggest washing stations in Rwanda built in 2003. Hundreds of smallholder farmers – members of cooperative – grow red bourbon cherries on the slopes around the station. There are relatively low average daily temperatures in the region so the cherries ripen slowly. It allows to create more acids and sugars inside of cherries during the ripening. And fermentation and drying occurs evenly and controllable.
We have a lot of inspiring memories with this coffee. We always choose coffees for our assortment with blind degustation. And this is not the first lot from Gatare in our line. And this is not a coincidence 🙂
We can tell a lot of things about Gatare`s high places in national competitions Cup of Excellence and about our impressions about it. But the elephant on the bag of Rwandan coffee tells us that we can be more laconic :)) In your cup you`ll get the cocktail with ripe red and blue berries, red flowers, tropical fruits and good dark chocolate with smooth and dense body.
