<p>This is a fantastic lot of coffee from the prolific Suke Quto farm & washing station in Guji - one of the premier coffee producers in Guji known for its sweet, bright coffees. Owner Tesfaye Bekele was integral to the development of the specialty coffee sector in Guji, and uses his expertise and connections to both grow incredible coffees on his own land and operate a community washing station for small-holders to process their coffees. His washed coffees are pulped and soaked for 36-48 hours before drying on raised beds, and he produces some excellent naturals as well - all utilizing environmentally-friendly methods. </p><p>
This washed lot is giving us smooth sweetness for days. A bright peach note reassures us this is a Guji coffee, while some richer honey flavors and a nice creamy finish give the cup a subdued, refined feel. Suke Quto is a special place that produces special coffees - and it really does seem like you can taste all the care and effort that went into this bean when you brew it. We're stoke we got to bring this coffee to the club, and we hope it excites you as well. </p>

Very Fruity and not too acidic

We loved this coffee so much! It tasted just like coffee from a local shop that charges $5 for a very good cup of coffee. I was honestly blown away by the flavor. Plus we just used a regular drip coffee maker. I HIGHLY recommend this!!

Delicious

Sweet and creamy with just a touch of acid, Suke Quto is tremendous. Soft, smooth mouthfeel that rounds out into a long, sweet finish. Exceptionally well-balanced and structured. Tremendous coffee.

Peach is there

subtle and distinct at the same time. Can't stop drinking it.

Just what I've been looking for!

This coffee honestly surprised me! I didn't need any sugar, just some steamed milk did the trick. Also, the peach flavor is actually there! It's subtle and definitely natural, very pleasant!

Best coffee I've had in a while!

I really liked this coffee, I couldn't stop myself from making a Chemex at 8pm the day it arrived. It's delicious. Light flavors of honey and grilled peach flow through a cup with medium body and a light mouthfeel. I haven't had it on espresso yet but I'm sure it will equally impress since the roast is a perfect medium.

Technique Matters

I got pretty weak brews from this one until I realized I could do something about it by grinding it finer. With a finer grind than I normally use the result was a fuller body and more flavors. I still didn't love the result -- I prefer the richer stuff of the Americas -- but it at least let me see why this was another interesting club selection. I wish I made the adjustment earlier though...

Hey Erik, What grinder are you using? If you have any settings to share, might help other folks dial in their coffees and compare.

Oh, good idea! I usually run my Baratza Virtuoso at 8 but took it down to 6 for this one. At that point I get some fines sneaking though the Melita paper filters I use but it was worth it.
