About this Coffee
The Rugali Washing Station is located on an altitude of 1550 to 1800 MASL in Nymasheke, in the western province of Rwanda. Founded in 2016, it became one of the biggest washing stations in this region. Around 1150 smallholder farmers are working together nowadays with the Rugali Washing Station. Under the Managing Director Josue Dusengiyumva, the annual production is approx. 500 tons of cherries.
Muraho Trading Corporation tells more about the Rugali Washing Station:
“A short 30 minute drive south from Kilimbi, you will arrive at Rugali coffee washing station (CWS). Rugali is by far our biggest and busiest CWS hence nicknamed “The Big Daddy”. Rugali was our second station built in April 2016”.
“Rugali is also located at the shores of Lake Kivu and is surrounded by the thousand hills of Rwanda. Every Wednesday you will witness and experience the true feeling of real Rwandese culture and farm life as the Rugali markets take place. Cows, goats, chickens, pigs and fish are all brought in using various forms of transport by the local community for trading. Further to this, an abundance of organic fresh fruits and vegetables are also sold at these markets”.
“Rugali in its short existence has gone from being a small CWS to one of the most respected and impactful in its community. This comes down to the tireless efforts of our Rugali families”.
“Coffee from this station has been used in multiple national and international barista competitions. Rugali along with little sister Kilimbi were the first stations in Rwanda history to produce and export Natural and Honey processed coffee legally. This has now paved the way for other coffee producers to do the same in Rwanda!”
