    Roaster’s Notes
    Lot 0253: Kanyege is a washing station privately owned and operated by Alphonse Kayijuka. The station was build in 2013, and 2014 was its first operational season, producing 30 tons of high quality parchment! It is located on the Western part of the Nyamasheke district, in the Macuba sector and the  Kanyege cell with an elevation of 1868 meters above sea level. All coffee is processed using an 800 kg/ per hour Penagos eco-pulper, using dry fermentation methods for at least twelve hours,  and then dried on raised beds for 15 to 22 days. Kanyege is supplied by a group of around 200 small farmers from the sector surrounding the washing station.
