About this coffee

Our Importer partner FTA works closely with their export partners Raw Material and
the Muraho Trading Co. This partnership helps affiliate co-operatives
increase their quality of production, fetch a higher price for their
coffee, and introduce themselves to new markets. Through this process a model has been developed that creates incentives which generate producer buy-in, all while maximising impact.

Built in April 2016, Rugali coffee washing station sees an annual production of approximately 54,000kg of milled green coffee each year.

The drying conditions at Rugali are ideal for ensuring optimal post-pulp drying, where coffee is laid on the drying beds between 12 pm and 3 pm, to ensure maximum exposure to the sun during the warmest time of the day.

Rugali has become an impactful example of a successful washing station for the specialty coffee market. It is a station that has in just a few years produced coffees that have been used in competitions worldwide and put the Nyamasheke District on the map for high- quality processed Rwandan coffees.

The station is located close to its smaller sister station Kilimbi. These two stations were the first stations in Rwanda to legally export natural and honey processed coffees.

While production of natural and honey processed coffee is still monitored strictly by NAEB, the elevation of Rugali naturally lends itself to producing coffee in these styles.
