This coffee was processed at a relatively new washing station called Umurage, which was opened in 2017 by Buf Coffee. Umurage washing station is located in the district of Huye, in the Kigoma sector in Rwanda’s Southern Province, at 1,750m above sea level. The Huye district has been the most awarded district in the Cup of Excellence competition.
Buf Coffee was founded in 2000 by Epiphanie Mukashyaka, a dynamic business woman and a source of inspiration to countless other female entrepreneurs in Rwanda’s coffee sector and beyond. Buf is now managed by Mukashyaka – known to all as Epiphanie – and her son, Samuel Muhirwa, who has taken an active role in running and expanding the business. The name ‘Buf’ derives from ‘Bufundu’, the former name of the region in which its washing stations are located.
