Vunga is a tiny washing station, located just outside the famed Virunga National Park, in the Nyabihu district of north-western Rwanda. The station is operated by a woman-led cooperative, and it provides processing for about 250 of the areas coffee farms.

Established in 2009, the station has been able to produce several coffees who were scored favorably in the Rwandan Cup of Excellence competition, despite its small size and limited means of production. In recent years, however, following its partnership with our friends from the Muraho Trading Company, the Vunga cooperative has received a major boost in resources, allowing it to provide additional payments to its farmers, such as health insurance, as well as improve its production capacities, resulting in remarkable coffees such as this one.
