The area of Gisha, and subsequently the washing station, was given its name by King Bigayimpunzi, once the ruler of the Tangara commune. The beautiful palace he ruled from still sits atop a nearby hill and has been used since to house dignitaries who oversaw the administration of the region. Today the Gisha station receives and processes cherry from around 1750 local producers and pays far above the average price. The fertile land and meticulous processing is a winning combination, with the station placing 11th in Cup of Excellence in 2019. This coffee is 4C, UTZ, and Rainforest Alliance certified.
