The Kibingo central washing station is in the commune of Kayanza in northern Burundi. The station itself sits 1,893 metres above sea level. The altitude of the farms in the neighboring hills that supply the washing station varies from 1,700 to 1,900 metres above sea level.
The washing station is equipped with 10 fermentation tanks, 2 soaking tanks and a drying field with 165 drying tables and 4 pre-drying tables. Kibingo can process 750,000 kg of cherry per day.
At the washing station, farmers can obtain organic fertiliser from reconverted coffee pulp. To promote farm renovation, producers can get low-cost, subsidised coffee seedlings at the washing station. Each station has its own nursery for this purpose.
Kibingo CWS participates in a number of farmer outreach and support projects include a goat and pig project, Farmer Hub, strengthening cooperatives and distributing fertiliser and coffee trees.
