About the coffee: Mushonyi washing station, a testament to the hard work and dedication of the 1,200 growers, is just one kilometre away from the shores of Lake Kivu. These growers, who live and farm on the hills surrounding Mushonyi, cultivate about 300 coffee trees on their small plots on average. Mushonyi was initially built by the army, anticipating the high volumes of cherry that these hardworking farmers would produce. The station, built to size, now has eight fermentation tanks, a standard washing channel, and a cherry sorting shed for additional sorting before the cherry is pulped.
