From the roaster:
The Gahahe Washing Station, situated in the Kayanza commune of Burundi's Kayanza province, was established in 1989 at an elevation of 1,805 meters. Its name, 'Gahahe,' originates from the igihahe trees that used to thrive in this area. These trees, resembling cacti with round, balloon-like branches, are commonly known in English as the 'Candelabra Tree.' The abundance of these trees led to the Kirundi expression “kubavomere batumisha,” describing the land as 'always covered in green.'
This washing station gathers cherries from more than 1,250 local coffee farmers residing across 16 neighboring collines. During the harvest season, Gahahe processes over 600 tons of coffee. Gahahe has consistently performed well in numerous Cup of Excellence competitions in recent years, further enhancing its reputation and quality.
