Rugali Coffee Washing Station is built next to the  village of Rwamiko and purchases coffee from about  140 families in the area. Once cherry is delivered to the station is it hand sorted. Coffee is then laid out to dry on terraced raised beds for an average of 30 days.

Coffee is laid out to dry on well-maintained drying beds,  where grass and weeds are managed and removed from  below to ensure no additional moisture rising from the  ground during the drying stage. The beds stretch across a large open plain where air flow and sunlight have maximum exposure to the coffee as it dries. During the dry season day time temperatures reach 28 to 30 degrees and evening temperatures drop to 12 to 15 degrees.
