Producer: Tesfaye Bekele
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.
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.
