Nyakizu washing station lies deep in the south of Rwanda near the border with Burundi. The region is famous for its high potential in coffee production. A gentle humid breeze blows through the valley, which makes a great companion for all the coffee washing stations in the region. This breeze is one of the quality ingredients of Nyakizu coffee: drying the parchment can take up to 35 days!
In this high-altitude region, farms lie scattered from 1750 to 2100 meters above sea level.
