The Ruvumbu Washing Station, once cooperative-owned, formerly processed around 100 metric tons of coffee cherries. Now that the station is under the ownership and management of a private investor, it has produced 250 metric tons of cherries for the first time this year.
Ruvumbu uses a single-disc McKinnon depulper and raised drying beds. Rwanda Trading Company is responsible for milling and exporting 100 percent of Ruvumbu’s parchment and green coffee. Despite the small volume from Ruvumbu, the station has some of the best quality coffee in Rwanda.
Ruvumbu took 3rd place overall in the 2014 Rwanda Cup of Excellence
Competition and was given a Presidential Award for receiving a cupping score above 90 points.
