Kinini Washing Station is part of is a women's led cooperative that is transitioning organic with 613 members in Rwanda's northern Rulindo District, Rusiga and Mbogo Sectors.

Kinini coffees are grown on the slopes of high altitude mountains ranging from 1800 to 2500 metres above sea level with temperatures varying from 17 to 23 degrees centigrade. The climate, altitude and volcanic soils allow the predominantly Bourbon-variety coffee cherries to mature slowly, giving a good-sized bean that is rich in flavour and aroma. Ripe cherries are picked in the early hours of the morning. They are then immediately delivered to the washing station where they are again hand sorted. The best quality cherries are pulped, fermented, graded and washed, all under expert supervision.

After washing, the beans are spread on raised, ventilated drying tables. They are protected both from rain and excessive sunlight throughout the drying process, allowing the coffee to develop its full taste characteristics slowly and naturally.
When dry, the coffee parchment is carefully bagged in well-ventilated stores before being transported to Kigali for milling and grading according to industry requirements.
