Description

The Karehe pulping station is one of the 22 washing stations under the management of SOGESTAL KAYANZA. The station was built in 2007 and has proven experience in specialty production: in 2015 Karehe took top honor at Burundi Cup of Excellence and the station continues to compete regularly.

Coffee here is collected from the 8 collines (hills) around Busiga, from smallholder growers numbering between 1500 and 2000 depending on the year. The soil is generally volcanic but variable from one hill to another (Hygroxéroferrisol, Hygroferrisol, Ferrisol and Kaolisol). Specialty coffee is prepared separately. The average production of cherry is 450.000 Kg and the specialty coffee represents 75% of all that produce.
