Gitega Hills, situated in Cyanika near Miko, is more than just a washing station. Established in 2016 by RTC and managed by Alex, it covers around six hectares and employs 150 locals, with a strong focus on empowering women. The station gathers cherries from 1040 farmers located within 7 km, offering them organic EM2 compost made from recycled cherry pulp and animal manure.
Bourbon, a significant C. arabica variety, has a rich history tracing back to its origins in Ethiopia. With its high-quality yield in mountainous regions, it has become one of the main sources for cultivating new coffee varieties, alongside Typica. Initially cultivated in Yemen, Bourbon found its way to Réunion (formerly Bourbon Island) and later spread to Africa and Latin America by the French.
