Remera washing station is one of several wet mills owned by Epiphane Mukashyaka, her son, Samuel Muhirwa, and their family. Epiphane is incredibly important to the recent history of specialty coffee in Rwanda. She and Samuel have been prominent and influential figures in the specialty coffee sector for the past couple of decades. Remera, Epiphane’s first washing station, now serves about 500 registered farmers who work small, garden style plots in Kamonyi, in Rwanda’s southern hills. Harvest here peaks in June. The farmers deliver coffee cherry to Remera where it is bulked into community day lots, then washed, and dried on raised beds.
