Rugali Coffee Washing Station is built next to the village of
Rwamiko and purchases coffee from about 140 families in
the area. Once cherry is delivered to the station is it hand
sorted, floated, pulped and then fermented for 12 hours.
Wet parchment is then run through a serpentine where a
moving channel of water allows any floaters and foreign
objects to float and be discarded. Once the coffee is
separated, it is then washed in one final rinse and placed
out on pre-drying sorting tables. It’s at this point where
hand sorters remove any defects including identifying
potential potato defects. Coffee is then laid out to dry on
terraced raised beds for an average of 21 days.
During Raw Material's visit to Rwanda in May this year, this lot was
identified as a high quality microlot, and separated as an
example of exceptional quality from the station.
