Kanyege Central Washing Station (CWS) is located in the high-altitude hills of the Nyamasheke District. The warm days and cool nights afforded by such high altitude helps the coffee cherries from the old bourbon trees mature and amass more sugars.
Kanyege CWS is part of Rwacof (IG: rwacof_exports) which is an organization which helps build the local industry through worker training, sustainability, and quality control standards. Rwacof pays its farmers both regular wages and bonuses through national banks, which offers farmers bank accounts and access to credit, for many of them for the first time.
The prime location combines with the careful work of local farmers and Kanyege employees to produce some of the best coffee in Rwanda.
