Built in 2001, Biloya washing station processes nearly one million kg of coffee cherries per year from 211 contributing smallholder producers. 138 raised drying beds cover the 2.5 hectares of land. When ripe cherries arrive, they are hand sorted to separate the less dense cherries.

Biloya employs both men and women and the 211 smallholders delivering cherry to Biloya grow coffee on farms that average roughly 0.5-2 hectares in size with common shade trees Bibira, Cordia Africana, and the subsistence crop Ensete ventricosum.
