Burundi / Mwumba, Ngozi
The Nzove Washing station is located in the Ngozi province of Burundi. The station was built in 1992 in the commune of Mwumba. The site of the station can be found in an area with remarkably fertile and nutritious soil which resulted in the local people of the area farming and cultivating the rich land without receiving any permission from the government at the time!
Once the cherries are picked and delivered they are hand sorted, floated, pulped and then fermented overnight. Wet parchment is then run through serpentine and floaters removed. Once separated, the coffee is then washed one final time then placed out on sorting tables to remove any defects and is laid out to dry on raised beds for up to 28 days until the ideal moisture content is achieved.
