Shyira Washing Station, located in Rwanda's Nyamasheke District, was founded in 2017 at an altitude of 2000 MASL, benefiting from picturesque surroundings and convenient access to water from a nearby river. Like all Muraho washing stations, Shyira has its own distinctive washing station song, fostering a sense of pride among workers. During processing, staff come together to sing and dance, actively contributing to the fermentation process through agitation. This collaborative approach aims to continuously enhance production quality and address challenges encountered by Rwandan coffee producers.

All cherries are hand-sorted before a pre-pulp float, removing under ripe or damaged fruit and foreign objects. After floating, it's pulped and fermented in dedicated concrete tanks for about 12 hours, with the parchment agitated throughout the day by ceremonial foot-stomping. After fermentation, the coffee goes through a large grading channel, separating parchment by density. During washing, parchment is continuously agitated to remove mucilage and encourage lower density parchment to float. Post-washing, parchment undergoes hand-sorting to remove defects before drying for 30 days, with regular turning.
