Suke Quto / Ethiopia - Organic - "Reserve Series"
Peach / Caramel / TangerineRegular price $19.00
Suke Quto Farm is stretched out over the highlands and valleys of the Odo Shakisso woreda. The volcanic soil found on the farm is very fertile. Tesfaye keeps the soil in shape by organic recycling through litterfall, root residue from coffee, and shade trees. Suke Quto coffees are all Organic and Rainforest Alliance certified.
Tesfaye works together with 171 outgrowers that deliver cherries to the Suke Quto Washing and Drying Station. Besides partnering up with outgrowers, he owns another 221 hectares in the highlands of Guji. More than 200 seasonal workers are needed to pick and process the Suke coffees.
In addition to producing environmentally-friendly coffee, Tesfaye focuses on the economic growth of the community. He initiated a project aiming to renew local schools, and together with a handful of dedicated coffee roasters, built a new school building in the neighboring village of Kurume.

We are excited to have this coffee return to our offering list — and with a new crop! It is a recent favorite of both staff and customers. This bright, sweet coffee adds a very welcoming warmth as we transition into the cooler months of autumn. It is complex and sweet from the first sip to the last.
