Mibirizi Coffee Washing Station was founded in 2014 and serves about 2,750 smallholder producers in the area around the Kayaza commune. Producers deliver their freshly harvested coffee cherry to the mill, where it undergoes what the washing station describes as "double fermentation," and the time will vary based on the weather and the space that is available at the mill: First the coffee is depulped, then it is fermented dry for 12 hours. Then it is fermented underwater for 6 or 18 hours, fully washed, and then given a soak underwater for either 12 or 10 hours.

Farmers here own less than half a hectare of land, on average, and in addition to growing coffee, they also grow crops like bananas, beans, yams, taro, and cassava, both for sale and for household use.
