At Fugi, producers bring their cherries to the washing station by bicycle, on foot, or to the central collection site. Fugi is equipped with two drying shelters, which provide shade to rest and sort the coffee beans, immediately after washing. The following day, the coffee moves to the drying beds where sorting continues by hand, every day of the drying process, to ensure all defects are removed. To get the coffee to a stable 12,8% moisture content, the coffee is dried with direct sunlight. If the sun is too hot, the beans are covered with penetrable sheets, although Fugi knows a very stable temperature curve throughout the year. At this station, we experiment with different processing methods so as to push boundaries and improve our understanding and skills. This station is known to produce very clean, and vibrant coffees.

Hello, my friend. My name is Emma and I manage Baho Coffee, an exporting company with 7 washing stations in Rwanda. I am Rwandese from the Kayonza district and have 15 years of experience in coffee, having worked for foreign companies before founding Baho in 2016. Baho means “stay strong”. It is something we say to comfort people who are struggling. It has a lot to do with my personal journey. I barely survived the year of 1994 and grew up to become a man without my parents whilst supporting my siblings. My philosophy at Baho is that the farmers are the bosses, the foundation of my work. My business relies on their happiness. I want to help change their lives as I changed mine. That is why my aim is to support farmers with education and getting better prices. My 3 pillars are culture, people and coffee. Our culture shapes us. People are the ones who make it happen. Coffee is the bridge. A good cup of coffee can help us understand each other. Come and drink a cup of coffee with me!

Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.
Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:
- Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
- EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.
Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.
