There are around 850 smallholder farmers who tender cherry to the Gigesa Washing Station. The average farm size is 2.5 hectares, with corn, grains, and banana typically growing alongside the coffee, as well as Birbira, Wanza, and Acacia trees for shade. The wet mill uses clean river water to process its washed coffee, which are fermented underwater in tanks for 48 hours before being washed clean of its mucilage and dried on raised beds. The farms range in elevation from 1,500 – 2,000 meters above sea level, and temperatures are moderate, reaching up to around 25° Celsius during the day, and cooling to around 16° Celsius at night.
