This fully washed lot is sourced from exclusively smallholder farmers supplying Kibirizi washing station, a wetmill operated by Gihanga Coffee Company in Nyanza district. Kibirizi sits at around 2,020masl, making it among Rwanda's highest altitude mills. Gihanga works with around 1,000 small farmers in the region.

These producers cultivate the bourbon variety on farms averaging around 1.5 ha in size.
Farmers selectively handpick and deliver ripe, red cherry to Kibirizi washing station. At intake, cherry is floated to remove any under- or over-ripes. Cherry is laid on raised beds to dry. Workers rake cherry frequently to ensure even drying. It takes approximately 14 to 21 days for cherry to dry.
