Bumbogo is a young washing station, starting production in early 2017. Despite being a newcomer to the Rwandan coffee scene, the station has been punching well above its weight, more than doubling its production over the last year. It also managed to produce some really great coffees, which is a true feat for such a young operation.

The station is located in the acclaimed Gakenke region, in northern Rwanda, just an hour's drive from the Kigali, the country's capital. The region is renowned for its beautiful vistas, as well as for being one of the most important centers of specialty coffee production in Rwanda. Several coffees from Gakenke have won the Rwandan Cup of Excellence award over the years.

Bumbogo provides services to close to over 500 of Gakenke's coffee farmers. Their cherries are pulped in a machine pulper, then floated in fermentation tanks overnight. The beans are then graded, based on their density, by using channels. They are then sorted by hand and left to dry on raised beds for 20 to 25 days.
