Coffee Facts

Bumbogo Washing Station is a brand new station built by Neza Trading Company, the partner company of Muraho Trading.

Bumbogo is located in an area known for high-quality coffee production in Rwanda. It is a highly competitive region in Rwanda and has been home to some of the winning lots of the Cup of Excellence. Bumbogo employs 105 casual employees through the season; this staff is responsible for hand sorting cherry, processing, and turning the parchment when drying.

All cherry is hand-sorted before a pre-pulp float, under-ripe or damaged cherry is removed, along with any foreign objects. Cherry is then floated in pre-pulping tanks removing any floaters and later pulped. Next, coffee is fermented in dedicated concrete fermentation tanks for an average of 12 hours.
