Karisimbi CWS: Rwanda

Rwanda

Karisimbi was established in 2015 in the Northern Province situated close to the border with Uganda. The washing station location is blessed with high altitudes where surrounding local farmers deliver the cherry to the washing station. They have also set up two mini stations to help farmers reduce the distance they have to travel to deliver the cherry collected. In total the station collects around 532 tons of cherry which will lead to about 4 containers

of green coffee each harvest.


Once collected the cherry is floated and separated before pulping and then being fermented for 12-16 hours. From here the coffee is then washed in the grading channels before being then transferred to raised African beds to dry for 10 -15 days.
