1000Faces Coffee - Ethiopia Suke Quto - 10 oz.

product

STORYarticle-shape

Our final washed Ethiopia offering from the 2023 harvest is from one of our longest ongoing relationships and consistent year-after-year purchases from Ethiopia, the always beloved - Suke Quto! Nestled in the highlands of the Odo Shakiso woreda, the Suke Quto Farm is a totally wild, organic treasure chest of regional landraces. These old varieties, Kurume and Wolisho, were originally selected from the forest and have been propagated for decades throughout Gedeo and Guji. You can expect Suke Quto to shine with dense stone fruit and berry flavors that are stereotypical of this region and these varieties. Overseeing the entire operation is Tesfaye Bekele - an agronomist, horticulture specialist, environmentalist, and visionary. Check out the story of Guji coffee to learn more about Tesfaye’s pioneering role in establishing coffee production in the Guji region.

Suke Quto Farm and processing station both exhibit an extreme attention to detail, and the results are stunning each season. A clean mouthfeel allows soft floral and ripe fruit flavors to shine - think orange blossom, dried apricot, and plum. Meanwhile, a lingering dark honey and vanilla sweetness balances out the flavors, transforming them into a silky citrus marmalade. It’s a perfect representation of coffee from the Guji region, and a beautiful gateway into the more fruit-forward, complex coffees we purchase from Ethiopia. We’re tasting: dried apricot, plum, cherry, nectarine, pear, rooibos tea, orange blossom, lavender, vanilla, honey, biscoff cookie.

1000 Faces Coffee is a coffee roaster, merchant of change, and voyager of the agrarian spirit. We travel to countries of origin and establish relationships with producers to ensure the integrity of our coffee. Since we opened our doors on day one, we have been working in partnership with the two most important ends of the 1000 Faces spectrum: the grower and the customer. It is this partnership that is at the foundation for real economic sustainability for not just us, but all parties involved. We believe that respect for geographic origin, direct relationships, and ecological awareness is the basis for creating a more sustainable coffee culture. Building on these principles, from seed to cup, 1000 Faces has set out to help you buy fresh roasted coffee beans of unsurpassed integrity and quality.
