The Aeropress by Aerobie™ is a simple and easy to use brewing technique designed to take the complications out of making a good cup of coffee.
The Aeropress combines the infusing properties of the French press with the pressure of the espresso to give a lovely clean cup with little fuss and so is best suited to freshly ground coffee that is finer than a French press grind but coarser than that used for an espresso.
To know the people of Gitwe Hill is to experience strength personified. The chief of Gitwe Hill may be small in stature but like the people he leads, his spirit makes him a giant. Gitwe hill is the closest hill to Long Mile's Heza washing station. As neighbors, we've already begun working together. When Heza needed more water to operate, we asked Gitwe's leaders for help. Our solution was to build a well for the community that could also provide fresh spring water for Heza.
With panoramic views of the Kibira forest and the mountains of the Congo, Gitwe hill has no shortage of beauty. Rich soil provides a home to many different crops, including coffee. The value that Gitwe hill places on grow- ing coffee can be plainly seen in the care they have taken to mulch and prune their coffee trees.
For 21 years the people of Gitwe found small ways to survive as war echoed around them. Since the war ended in 1994 the people of Gitwe have worked towards one thing. Unity. Many of their animals and crops were poached during the war, so now their hope is to work together to rejuvenate their hill. They hope to see it plentiful in livestock and covered in new coffee trees.
