Wamuguma is a washing station with some of the richest & fertile soils in the region. Farmers are encouraged to become cooperative members, as most farmers in Kenya are smallholders and produce enough cherry for just a few bags. Washing stations are often called "factories" and play an enormous role in the quality of the final product. After picking, the ripe cherry is brought to the factory by smallholder farmers before it undergoes processing to remove the skin and pulp – known as the wet processing method.


The nearest water source is the Kangunu stream, and the factory is dependent on electrical pumps to move water to reservoir tanks before using it for processing. Water is also recirculated for conservation. The factory uses a disc pulper with three sets of discs to remove the skin and fruit from the inner parchment layer that protects the green coffee bean.

After pulping, the coffee ferments overnight to break down the sugars before cleaning, soaking, and spreading out on the raised drying tables. Time on the drying tables depends on the climate, ambient temperature, and volumes under processing and can take from 7 to 15 days in total.
