Rugali was one of the first two wet mills in Rwanda to receive official legal approval from the governing NAEB agricultural board to produce natural and honey processed coffees. This was run as a trial, as until then the country's coffee output was entirely washed processed, primarily due to health concerns with the drying of natural and honey coffees and their increased likelihood of developing mould and other harmful defects if processed poorly. As a result of their excellent work over the years since, the trial was deemed successful and the license approved for further wet mills across the country.

The wet mill has five full time staff which expands to 180 seasonal workers during peak season. With 124 drying tables to share across the 1,150 farmers that provide cherries to the station, harvest is a time of intense activity.
