Gahahe was built in 1989 in the Kayanza commune in the Kayanza province. It lies at an altitude of 1805m. The name 'Gahahe' comes from the igihahe trees that were once found in this region. The branches of these trees look like cacti and grow in a round, balloon-like shape which is why they are more commonly known in English as the 'Candelabra Tree'. Due to the number of these trees in this region, the Kirundi phrase kubavomere batumisha was used to describe the land which means 'always covered in green'.This washing station collects cherries from over 1700 local coffee farmers spread over the 16 neighbouring collines. During the harvest season, Gahahe processes more than 750 tons of coffee.
