The Kilimbi washing station is located in Nymasheke, in the western providence of Rwanda, at an altitude of 1650 – 1850 MASL. Founded in 2016, it was one of the first washing stations in Rwanda’s history to produce and export Natural and Honey processed coffee legally. Over the years, Kilimbi became an award-winning station. In 2020, it was the only one that produced Honeys. Around about 750 smallholder farmers are working together with the washing station, under the Managing Director Joseph Ntarindwa. The production is approximately 300-350 tons of cherries per year.

One century ago, Arabica coffee in West Java used to be the world’s finest coffee. It faded for a while as it was slowly being replaced with tea. Since 2002, when the coffee market recovered, Arabica Coffee in West Java was replanted. Due to agroclimatic advantages and good management, West Java Arabica Coffee plantations yielded a good quantity of specialty coffee. The farm where this coffee is produced by Rimbun Jaya Abadi is located in Kamojang Mountain in West Java, Indonesia. The red cherries are selectively handpicked during the harvest. The coffee from this farm is also environment-friendly as it is planted using the agroforestry-permaculture method and processed using high standards of equipment.
