Suke Quto Farm
The Suke Quto Farm was established in 2005 with the idea to implement environment-friendly coffee farming practices under the shade of the natural forest canopy. The original farm was only 5 hectares but has grown to over 221 hectares. When a bushfire destroyed most of the forest surrounding the farm, many locals started to grow Corn and Teff on the land (which leads to soil erosion and will leave the land barren after a few years). Tesfaye, the owner of the farm, came with the idea to distribute coffee- and shade-tree-seedlings. Over 150 out-growers are now replanting the forest and bringing organic coffee to the Suke Quto farm for processing.
The washed coffees are first washed with spring water after which they are pulped 5-disk Brasillian pulper. The mucilage is removed by fermentation, which lasts 36-72 hours depending on the weather condition. The coffee is then dried on raised African beds (over 200 beds are present at the washing station) for 9-13 days. The natural coffees are dried on drying beds for 21-27 days.
