The Guji zone is well known throughout the world for amazing & unique tasting coffees. Suke Quto is a certified organic & rainforest certified coffee from this region. It is our goal of the green buying team at Vigilante to feature the four distinct growing regions of Ethiopia and we’re proud to release this as the second of these four.
In addition to this coffee being a spectacular cup of coffee it is the origins of how and why Suke Quto were established that solidified our commitment to purchase this coffee. Tesfaye, the founder of Suke Quto had a dream to develop environmentally friendly coffee, and sustain the local community with a consistent income based on high quality specialty coffee. After a bushfire, and out of a desire for forest conservation, Tesfaye started Suke Quto Farm. He realized it was possible to conserve the forest by distributing coffee and shade tree seedlings amongst the local community. He recruited 150 out-growers, that replanted the forest. The local smallholders harvest organic coffee and deliver it to Suke Quto Farm for processing.
