Ngogomo is one of the main stations in the province of
Muyinga. Today serves more than 1,800 farmers on 18 hills.
Quality assurance begins as soon as farmers deliver their
cherry. All cherry is floated in small buckets as a first step to
check its quality.
After sorting, cherry is de-pulped within 6 hours of delivery.
The beans are then transported directly to the drying tables
where they will dry for 2-3 weeks.
The cherries have been harvested and taken to
the Samaipata mill on the same day of the harvest.
After washing and floating the cherries are directly moved to
raised beds for 3-4 days before being dried in mechanical dryers.
