Gitwe is a relatively newer washing station in Rwanda's southern Nyamasheke District. Gitwe sits at roughly 1800 meters above sea level, and the farms of the 800 outgrowers who deliver their coffee to Gitwe are situated between 1800 and 2000 meters. This is a fully washed/wet process coffee, meaning that after the coffee cherry is removed from the seed, the remaining sticky fruit layer (mucilage) is removed by fermenting in a tank for several hours.
