These coffee mills are part of a unique private cooperative that is organized with farmer-members, but is family-owned company called Bufcafe (or Bufcoffee to the Anglophone). Bufcoffee was started with the determination of Epiphanie Muhirwa, and she still oversees the company while her son Samuel is in charge of the washing stations and dry mill in Kalambi.
Bufcafe now owns two coffee washing stations – Remera and Nyarusiza – as well as its own coffee trees, and buys coffee cherries from as many as 264 surrounding smallholder farmers, as well as three different local cooperatives. At Nyarusiza washing station in 2014 there was a total of 798,685kg of cherry delivered throughout the season, approximately 5% of which was delivered by trees owned by Epiphane and her family. The remaining quantity of delivered cherry comes from farmers within the community surrounding the washing station.
