About this coffee

Get out of the way, Gitwe is coming through! Just in time for the warm weather months, we’re happy to welcome a new coffee from Burundi. Gitwe is our second coffee sourced from the folks at Long Miles Coffee and adds some lovely flavor diversity to our spring offerings.

Perfect for those warmer days and cooler mornings, Gitwe is like the delicious, juicy and complex sangria of your springtime coffee dreams. The flavor and aroma of fresh blackberries is the first characteristic you’ll notice out-the-gate, but don’t miss its approachable acidity and body. While Gitwe’s acidity may not be as tart as say, biting into a lemon wedge, it still maintains a vibrant citric quality much like that of a tangerine. The body and finish are pleasant, clean and light as if you’re sipping on a cup of white tea.

We had high expectations for our second go-round with Long Miles and Gitwe far exceeded them. Pour yourself a cup and see for yourself!

Tasting Notes

Blackberry, Tangerine, White Tea

Brewing Recommendation

This coffee shines when filter brewed: we suggest the Chemex or Kalita brewing devices. Generally, filter brewing produces better coffee clarity (ability to tell flavors apart) than body (texture, weight in your mouth) and we love this coffee's clarity.
