Gakenke is a coffee station in Gatara Commune, Kayanza Province of Burundi.  Farmers grow mostly older bourbon types, the original coffee cultivar introduced to the area in the 1930s by Catholic monks traveling from the island of Reunion.

Gakenke sits at 1,675 meters above sea level, but many of the farmers have coffee planted much higher than this at soaring elevations (meaning very complex flavors in the cup). Gakenke is named after a plant that grows wild in the area with thin, hollow stems that are commonly used to drink the locally made banana beer.  

Gakenke pulls clean water from the Rivubo river that runs alongside the station site. During the harvest season, 1,900 local coffee farmers from 22 neighboring villages sell their coffee to Gakenke, where it is processed as fully washed and naturally in whole cherry.  The lot we are offering is a fully washed coffee.

Flavor Notes:  Spiced Darjeeling Tea, Lemon, Bright & Lively

 

Please note: In an effort ensure your coffee arrives as fresh as possible, we roast everything to order.  Website orders are roasted each Wednesday, packaged Wednesday, and shipped on Thursday.  Orders will be filled as quickly as possible depending on availability, but please note that orders placed after Monday may be filled the following week.
