A thick fragrance with notes of brownie, cherry, hazelnut and watermelon. This year Ireme brings a well-balanved cup with a silky body and a smooth acidity. Flavors of chocolate and plum and a sweet long-lasting aftertaste.
Gasharu washing station is located on the shores of Lake Kivu and a stone’s throw from
Nyungwe National Park which is one of the largest montane and most preserved montane
rainforests in Central Africa.This region’s elevation, soil, and climate are what coffee trees love best.
The story of Gasharu Coffee goes back to 1976 when Celestin Rumenerangabo planted his first coffee trees in Nyamasheke. A farmer and buyer of cherries, he grew the business to what it is today: 2 washing stations, Gasharu and Muhororo, that export beans from nearly 1650 farmers directly.
Gasharu Coffee promotes high quality coffee and good living standards of coffee farmers in the community, working with around 1650 farms from 12 main coffee village farms, involving them throughout all stages of coffee processing. Every year they employ around 320 local workers from the community during the peak of the crop with 70% of the workers being women. Gasharu Coffee integrates good production practices with environmental preservation, community sensitivity and long-term coffee viability on their farmer philosophy.
Once collected at the washing station, coffee is sorted and floated to remove unripe cherries. Cherries are then introduced in tanks to ferment for 72 under anaerobic conditions before drying on raised African beds for 25-30 days.
