About the Nemba Washing Station, from Greenco:
Nemba was built in 1991 in the Kayanza Commune in the Kayanza province. It lies at an altitude of 1,818m. The people who lived in this region had the reputation for being unproductive. They were called kunembera which is Kirundi for 'lazy'. Since the construction of the washing station and the increase in coffee farming activity, this perception of the people has changed.
This washing station collects cherries from over 2,600 local coffee farmers spread over the 15 neighbouring collines. During the season, Nemba processes more than 400 tons of coffee.
In the cup, this coffee reveals notes of tropical fruits balanced with a tangerine finish.
