Kaffe Obscura has the great pleasure to offer you this excellent coffee.

Gitesi is a private washing station owned and run by a father and son team, Alexis and Aime Gahizi. Aime and the staff are very competent, and trained in managing the delivery of cherry from the farmers. Coffee comes from many communal small farms. Gitesi also has its own land on which it is growing coffee, with plans to expand this to both directly be able to control and manage the quality of their production but also to ensure supply.

Competition for cherry can be pretty tough, farmers can deliver to whichever washing station they want. Maintaining a good supply of cherry is dependent on the relationships Gitesi has with farmers and being able to offer competitive pricing. They have very strict routines for cherry reception and sorting, cherry delivered by farmers must be sorted by the farmers themselves, if this is not done sufficiently there are staff who will do further sorting.
