ABOUT THE FARM:
Hutwe station is located at 1,790 masl in Kirumba zone, a very challenging region plagued with rebel groups. Like Virunga’s other washing stations, Hutwe operates a Penagos eco-pulper. The station processes cherries from smallholder farmers at altitudes ranging between 1,500 and 1,800masl. The coffee here is typically of the Bourbon variety, which thrives in these high altitudes, as well as a local subvariety called Rumangabo.
