The Simbi washing station is located in the Huye district of the southern province and services 1,475 smallholder coffee producers who all grow high quality bourbon. This washing station was established as recently as 2013 with the construction of a 300 metric ton per season cherry processing facility, and a 2.8 tonne per hour pulping machine. Following the pulping of freshly delivered cherry, the coffee is wet fermented and then the beans are sorted by density using water filled grading channels. The wet parchment is dried under cover for 24 hours before being moved to uncovered drying beds for an average of 15 days. In Simbi’s first year of operation, a sample was submitted for The Cup of Excellence competition and achieved 9th place. Such an accolade has inspired the owner Abdul Rudahunga to focus on maintaining high quality while increasing production.
