Visit a Coffee Washing Station

Along with tea plantations, Rwanda is also a coffee-producing country. Competition is strife, which results in focus on high-quality produce. At washing stations, cherries are selected and sorted after which they are weighed and checked for quality again. Processing involves pulping, fermenting, washing and grading, after which they are left to dry and then milled.

When visiting a washing station to understand how the process works from harvesting to exporting, note how the majority of the work is done manually by the workers. This experience is sure to leave you with something to reminisce over your next cuppa.
