From the importer, Genuine Origin:

Coffee was introduced to Rwanda in the early 1900s, and by 1970, the crop skyrocketed to account for 70% of the country’s total export revenue. However, the coffee trade suffered due to genocide and war. Fortunately, Rwanda has advanced in recent years with the help of enterprising smallholder farmers who are propelling the country forward with coffee.

The Kayumbu Washing Station was originally built by the Rwandan army to receive large volumes of cherry. Today, the station serves over 1,000 smallholders in the Kamonyi district who farm coffee at altitudes of 1,600-2,100masl.

To remain competitive and encourage farmers to bring their coffee to the station without the hassle of sorting, Kayumbu accepts nearly all the cherries delivered to them. That means Kayumbu takes on the responsibility of meticulously sorting through the cherries in multiple rounds of flotation and visual checks to uphold high-quality standards.
