This Rwanda Karongi Gitesi (Lot 51) is one of our most dynamic coffees on our current lineup. An amazing acidity that gives way to a melon softness initially. As the cup cools the body and sweetness develop into a sweet and clean cup of coffee with a memorable mouthfeel!

The father and son team, Alexis and Aimé Gahizi in West Karongi, Rwanda, are stewards of the land and community as they work to produce delicious and sustainable coffee. In addition to providing organic fertilizer and farming materials, they provide their farmers with free coffee trees, seasonal bonuses, and health insurance.

In 2016, they started the Own A Cow project. In Rwanda, cows are a sign of love and unity, and many consider them the most prized belonging in a family. A cow provides sustainability within coffee families by providing nourishment, revenue, and organic fertilizer for their crops.
