Kibingo Washing Station was built in 1986 in the Kayanza Commune in the Kayanza province. It sits at a high altitude close to the Congo-Nile Crest. The washing station is known for the wooden bridge that was built over the river that runs through it.

The name Kibingo comes from the Kirundi word urubingo which means ‘reeds’. Reeds were planted along the river to contain the water and to prevent the surrounding soils from eroding.

The washing station collects cherries from over 3500 local coffee farmers spread over the 18 neighbouring colonies. During the harvest season, Kibingo processes for than 750 tons of coffee.
