Ato Tesfaye Bekele is one of the people who put Guji's specialty coffee on the map. While the Guji zone was dominated by cattle ranchers, he sought new ways to make coffee popular in Guji. In Tesfaye's own words - I do not consider myself a coffee farmer, because coffee is everything to me. All my time and energy is spent on the beans that I harvest and process. We love his coffee and have bought it as long as we have roasted coffee at Gringo.

Suke Quto Farm stretches across the highlands and valleys of Odo Shakisso woreda in Guji, Ethiopia. The volcanic soil found here is very fertile and is full of nutrients and has a soil depth of at least two meters. Tesfaye keeps the soil fertile through organic recycling; falling leaves and branches from shrubs and trees as well as root remains from coffee trees enrich the soil. All coffee grows under shade from, among other things, fake banana (a very common plant in Ethiopia).

Tesfaye works with 171 family farms that deliver their coffee berries to Suke Quto's washing and drying station. In addition to collaborating with outside producers, he owns an additional 221 hectares in the Guji Highlands. More than 200 seasonal workers are needed to pick and process the coffee for Suke Quto.

The region mainly grows two local varieties that together produce a juicy, complex, tasty and sweet coffee with the character of tropical fruit, tea and peach.

Brewing Facts

Suke Quto can be used in any brewing method. But it's definitely our first choice when it comes to Cold Brew. If you want a very light and refreshing drink, mix 70-75 grams of Suke to 1 liter of water in approx. 5 minutes. Strain and voila, you have a lively and refreshing coffee to enjoy on sunny days.
