Kirasa washing station was originally a government run mill created in 1992. In 2012 Succam Exports purchased Kirasa with the aim of producing higher quality washed coffee and the rest is history. The location of Kirasa is breathtaking, surrounded by high climbing hills and right next to the Kirasa River. Many of the farmers in the region intercrop their plots with banana trees, creating not only shade for coffee trees but also a much needed food source for their family.


Mill manager Emile Ndikumasabo, alongside agronomist Anne-Marie, have been producing natural fertilizer from discarded coffee pulp. The pulp is placed in a shallow pit in the ground where it is covered up with soil and allowed to naturally ferment. The end result is used to fertilize the coffee seedlings in their nursery. Once the seedlings grow they are then handed out to farmers to renovate their coffee gardens.

Traditionally coffee produced at Kirasa was only washed, but this year Emile and his team implemented a natural process. Special care is taken with sorting and drying to produce a clean and extraordinarily sweet cup. The naturals ooze Blackberry Jam, Green Apple and Biscuit. Making super yummy full bodied filter.
