The Gakenke Washing Station dedicate their work towards helping drive improvements of quality, equity, and traceability of Burundian coffee. With around 2,685 registered coffee producers, that each have an average of 250 trees, often grown in back gardens and wild areas. All spread over the 22 hills of the Gatare commune in Kayanza. 

When we approached Gakenke last year, we were amazed to hear of the incredible coffee quality in the area and this natural process is no exception. The coffee cherries received endless enrichment from the pulps that were dried under direct sunlight. Carrying more sweetness than it’s washed and honey counterparts, with bold and tart Damson stone-fruit flavours, balanced with tropical pomegranate notes and a dark chocolate base.

LIVE TRANSPARENCY REPORT 

BREW RATIOS:

  • Espresso: 1:2 coffee to water, extracted in 28-32 secs
  • Filter: 60-65g coffee per litre of water, brewed for 3-4 mins

ROAST TYPE:

  • We create a new and unique profile for each coffee we roast. Although the profiles are different, our approach is always the same, to highlight and accentuate the flavours created at the farm and mill. This means we don't label our coffees as espresso, filter, dark or light roast. This coffee is omni-roast, meant to be delicious however you brew. We believe the heart of speciality is keeping the identity and character of every coffee intact and alive, no matter the brew method.

    Delicious coffee and excellent customer service

    I ordered several packs of single origin coffee, one of them being Gakenke (Natural). It has a fulsome, rich, yet delicate flavour - a must try. I favour coffee produced in Rwanda, Kenya, and Ethiopia, but this one - originating in Burundi - and Aqi Badu - produced in China and also via Natural process - have proved a refreshing and delicious experience.

    Because I decided to change the order after placing it, I caused a minor mishap with the delivery. Still, the stellar Origin customer service got this lovely coffee to us fast and painlessly. A happy experience throughout.

    A coffee that is different from the usual

    I've tried many kinds of coffee sold in the UK. I must say, only handful were really good and different from the crowd. This coffee has perfect balance between strenghth, bitterness, and acidity. With a very unique smell, you know it's not a corporate coffee in your cuppa. Always use a freshly ground beans, the precious 2 morning minutes are still worth it.
