Ethiopia Suke Quto Honey
Hand-picked, mixed heirloom, both Rainforest Alliance and Organic certified. This intensely flavorful highland forest Ethiopian coffee blooms with lush perfume-like floral notes. Flavors of lemon and fruit jam are rounded by a sugarcane sweetness.
Suke Quto sits within the Guji zone of Sidamo in the south of Ethiopia, surrounded by mountains and covered by dense forest. After a brush fire more than a decade ago Tesfaye Bekele started Suke Quto farm as a project to help with forest conservation. He distributed shade tree seedlings along with seeds of Ethiopian heirloom coffee varieties like Wolisho and Kurume to 150 members of the community that worked to replant the forest. These growers are paid a premium to bring only the ripest cherries to Suke Quto farm for processing. At the farm they do washed, natural processing and also a honey process, which is quite rare for Ethiopia.
