Description: Butegana was built in 1972 and was the first washing station in Burundi. It is in the Kayanza Commune in the Kayanza province and lies at an altitude of 1,612m. Many years ago, Rwandan and Burundian troops fought against each other in this region. That is how it got the name 'Butegana' which means "place of attack".
This washing station collects cherries from around 2,900 local coffee farmers spread over the 24 neighboring collines. During the harvest season, Butegana processes more than 1,050 tons of coffee.
