  • Tesfaye Bekele works alongside 171 other outgrowers to deliver cherries to the Suke Quto washing and drying station. The Suke Quto farm extends over the hills and valleys in Guji, the southern zone of Ethiopia’s Oromia region. Coffee grown in Guji is quite distinct because of the quality of soil, forests and climate.  

    The soil is fertile, volcanic and kept to a high quality thanks to Tesfaye’s method of organic recycling of litterfall and root reside from the coffee and shade trees. The coffee is shade grown under Acacia, Eucalyptus, Worka trees and Moringa trees. Waste water on the farm is kept in three lagoons and is naturally filtered using vetiver grass.

    Tesfaye is somewhat of a pioneer of the Guji region. He was the first in his community to initiate coffee growing, by creating a seedling nursery on a small plot of land he reserved. He was motivated to show that preserving Guji’s forest was an all encompassing investment for the Guji people. Today, all the coffee farms in Guji were inspired by the Suke Quto farm.   

    This particular honey process coffee is of the Kurume and Weilcho variety. Both are Landacre Ethiopian varities which are native to the Sidamo zone, a larger region of the country.
