ROASTER'S NOTES:

the Greenco company logo

The overarching company responsible for Gahahe and the eight washing stations in the Kayanza district is called Greenco, whose motto is “Hope Through Coffee.” To follow their mission of improving the lives of family farmers, Greenco trains agronomists to provide all their producers with knowledgeable support.

In addition to good agricultural practices, Greenco has also outfitted the washing station with solar panels to provide all electricity on site. All water used in processing is treated and all pulp is composted and returned to producers as fertilizer.

PRODUCTION NOTES:

The name Gahahe refers to the washing station that produces this lovely coffee. The name is derived from the Igihahe tree that is native to the area. It has cacti-like branches and is more commonly known as the Candelabra tree.

This washing station services roughly 1700 small producers from the area. Cherry is purchased from these producers and then strict milling practices are used. Strict controls are in place from cherry selection all the way through dry and wet processing, with a focus on quality not quantity. Their system is working; in the 2017 Cup of Excellence competition, 13 of the top 23 coffees were Greenco entries, including coffee from Gahahe.

RECOMMENDED BREW METHODS:

With a delicate complexity and naturally-heavy body, we find this Burundi coffee shines brightest when a filtered brew method is used.

Filtration gives clarity of flavor in the cup and drip methods like Chemex, Pourover, or even Clever Dripper, are all great options for getting the most out of this exceptional single-origin.

ROASTED TO ORDER:

When you order online, your coffee is roasted the next morning (Monday-Thursday) by our artisan roasters in Olympia, WA and is packaged and shipped out to you that afternoon.

OUR PROMISE:

When we find an exceptional coffee we buy it. Then the unroasted beans travel by land and by sea to the USA where our artisan roasters develop a custom roast profile for the coffee that best highlights its unique qualities.

We pay farmers fairly and build relationships that last decades. More than 30 years of experience means we have an abundance of relationships with coffee producers that grant us access to the best coffee beans in the world.
