The Ruvumbu Washing Station, once a cooperative-owned processing plant, has more than doubled its capacity since transitioning to a private mill under the supervision of Rwanda Trading Company. Despite the small volume from Ruvumbu, the station has some of the best quality coffee in Rwanda. Ruvumbu took 3rd place overall in the 2014 Rwanda Cup of Excellence Competition and was given a Presidential Award for receiving a cupping score above 90 points.
