Ethiopia Suke Quto Espresso
The Suke Quto is definitely a member of our coffee family. We’ve had the Suke Quto time and time again, year after year, and it never disappoints. Grown at 1800 - 2200 masl and made up of the varieties Kurume and Welicho, its flavour profile is super sweet like a lemon/peach iced tea with a hint of lemon grass and some black tea and toffee notes in the finish.
We try to engage as much as we can with transparent projects that aim to transform the landscape for farmers. Tesfaye Bekele, a farmer and the owner of the Suke Quto processing mill is a member of the Trabocca blockchain - a system that tracks the flow of money from the purchase of green beans directly into the hands of the farmers themselves at much fairer prices and higher rates.
Bekele’s washing station is situated in Guji and collects the coffees of 278 outgrowers in the region. All transactions and lots are fully traceable through this washing station, which you can see for yourself through Trabocca’s site here.
