This is a brand new washing station for us in Rwanda and we were just blown away when we visited in May last year.

Situated in the northern region of Nyabihu, Shyira is a brand new washing station that only started processing coffee this harvest.

The station itself is situated at 1900 metres above sea level and the farms they buy cherry from go up to 2300 metres. This is the highest grown Rwandan coffee we have ever come across. The station is owned and operated by Muraho Trading Co, an exporter we work with in Rwanda and whose name Muraho means ‘Hello’ or ‘Greetings’ in the Kinyarwandan language.

The station is so high and that it has a cool and temperate climate meaning coffees take around 45 days to dry slowly evenly. The landscape is rugged and hilly at this altitude and Shyira and its surrounding farms perch on steep hillsides that lead down to a beautiful river that runs along the bottom of the station. We were blown away by the location and altitude of Shyira, but more so by the quality of the coffees we saw drying there when we visited, by how the coffee tasted on the cupping table and by the amazing welcome we received from the team there. We can’t wait to go back this year!
