The Gahahe washing station services over 1,700 smallholder farmers in the Kayanza Commune. During the harvest season, all coffee is selectively hand-picked. Most families only have 200 to 250 trees, and harvesting is done almost entirely by the family. 
After the cherry is delivered by local families to the washing station, the cherries are first floated for sorting, before being pulped within 6 hours of delivery. The coffee is then dry fermented for up to 12 hours and fermented for another 12 to 24 hours under water.

Parchment is then soaked for an additional 12-18 hours before being dried on raised beds for 2 to 3 weeks.
