The Gitega Hill’s mill is located in the Nyamagabe District of the southern province of Rwanda. It is located very close to Nyungwe Forest and the source of the River Nile. Bernard Uwitije, a local man, had been farming and trading coffee in a conventional way until, in 2015, he realised the potential for specialty grade coffee.
He built his first washing station, Gitega hills, which operated successfully in his first year and he decided to expand the operations by building a second washing station, Ibisi and the quality at both stations remain outstanding.
The average farm supplying to Gitega is at an altitude around 1650m, and that high altitude along with the volcanic soil of the area and Bernard Uwitije’s expertise make Gitega an excellent location for growing and processing high quality coffee.
