Suke Quto has been one of our long-term coffee partners since 2014, and with each harvest we are reminded yet again of just how unique this coffee from Shakiso is. Blessed with consistent rainfall and climate, a high altitude, and fertile soil, Tesfaye Bekele's farm has continued to flourish as he continuously makes improvements to both his perspective to farming and also incorporating new technologies.

Comprised primarily of two varietals endemic to Ethiopia, coffee cherries are stringently harvested and sorted for ripeness, and depulped before undergoing a long fermentation for up to 48 hours in concrete tanks. Coffees are then laid out to dry over the course of 12 to 16 days, regularly turned and protected in tarpaulin during the midday and during the night to ensure even and consistent drying.

His pursuit for quality is equally matched by his altruistic motives for growing coffee, partnering with coffee importer Trabocca to help build a school for his community.

Pro Tip

This Suke Quto Washed is an omni roast; and can be enjoyed as both as an espresso or a pourover. Enjoy it on its own, or with milk to taste!
