Tons of Sweet Cola with a Maple Syrup roundness, delve a little deeper & find Nutmeg. We've enjoyed this coffee with a little milk or alternative but obviously super delicious black.

What RAW MATERIALS the importer of this coffee have to say about it:
In Rwanda, we work alongside Muraho Trading Co. This partnership helps affiliate co-operatives increase their quality of production, fetch a higher price for their coffee, and introduces them to new markets. This will be a continuous work in progress in the coming years, as we gain a greater understanding of the particular challenges Rwandan coffee producers face. Through this process we can develop a model that creates incentives that generate producer buy-in, all the while maximising impact. We supply coffee from across Muraho’s washing stations, which are located in the Nyamasheke, Gakenke, and Nyabihu regions of Rwanda.

The Gito coffees are something new for us at Raw Material. Finding new markets for coffees in order to generate increased profits for producers is a key part of our work. The Gito blend comes from three of MTCo’s beautiful stations in Nyamasheke District, Rugali, Kilimbi, and Gisheke. This screen size, 13-14, is usually sent straight to the commodity market. Having isolated the cherries, we found a hidden gem that we are thrilled to share with you. Gito Natural Gito means ‘tiny’ in Kinyarwanda. Traditionally, this screen selection has been sorted and sold to the commodity market, based on its size alone. To ensure we could maximise the volumes we could provide to the specialty market (and in turn return better profits to those who produced them) we decided to isolate these coffees and see for ourselves. Sorted by density, we collected the highest density grade and found these coffees to be a delight. We are now thrilled to offer these hidden gems to our specialty customers. For the Gito natural, the cherry is sorted and cleaned, it is ready to be dried. The cherries are laid out evenly across raised beds, providing consistent airflow, and height away to prevent moisture and animals from coming into contact with the cherry. The cherry is dried for 30 days, turned constantly when the sun is high and covered during the night. Once the cherry has dried, the now dried outer fruit is removed, and the coffee beans are ready to be organised for packing.
