About Kavugangoma washing station:
Burundi has 18 Provinces which is divided into 129 Communes and approximately 3000 hills. About 18 hills surround and supply coffee to the KAVUGANGOMA Washing Station. The name KAVUGANGOMA, which actually means, the sound of the drums, originated from the location of the washing station which can be found on the hill of Kavugangoma. In Burundian tradition, all the drums were made out of trees called Umuvugangoma. Some time ago, when Burundi was a Kingdom, this tree was planted and became sacred to the region. The washing station took 4 years to build and is currently doing its eighth production.
