The Suke Quto Farm (Rainforest Alliance Certified) was established in 2005 with the idea to implement environmentally-friendly coffee farming practices under the shade of the natural forest canopy. The original farm consisted of only 5 hectares but has now grown to over 221 hectares. When a bushfire destroyed most of the forest surrounding the farm, many locals started to grow Corn and Teff on the land (which leads to soil erosion and will leave the land barren after a few years). Tesfaye, the owner of the farm, came up with the idea to distribute coffee and shade tree seedlings. Over 150 out-growers are now replanting the forest and bringing organic coffee to the Suke Quto farm for processing
This natural processed coffee is recommended for use as both a pour over or a single origin espresso that is bright and complex.
Tasting Notes: Floral, Meyer lemon, peach and honey. Very clean and crisp finish.
