COFFEE PROJECT

INTANGO | 72 HOURS | ANAEROBIC

Fugi Washing Station is one of the six washing stations of Baho Coffee. Here, Emmanuel Rusatira works with a new anaerobic fermentation technique, using traditional brewing pots called "Intango". The cherries are placed in the pots and mixed with water. The added water comes from the depulper and contains a high sugar content due to the mucilage of the cherries. The cherries stay in this pot for 72 hours. The fermentation process is slower and more controllable as the clay material of the pots does not absorb heat and the cherries remain cool.

25% of the farmers, who deliver cherries to Fugi and Bugoyi Washing Station are women. Emmanuel highly appreciates their hard work and their reliable and quality conscious approach. Together with him, we founded our "Female Empowerment" project to shine a light on the incredible work that these women are doing, empower them and motivate them to continue to work with a high-quality standard. With every bag sold 1 €/kg goes directly to these incredible women.
