Whole cherries are naturally dried on raised African beds.

Tesfaye is the founder and owner of the Suke Quto farm and washing and drying statio. The farm not only produces coffee but Tesfaye works together with 171 outgrowers that deliver cherries to the station for processing. The farm and station employs local residents from the surrounding Kumure and Suke villages. The livelihoods of many people who work here rely on coffee production, therefore the future of this wonderful coffee lies with them. Trabocca have set up the Suke Quto School Project together with Tesfaye with the goal to build fully equipped schools for the local children.
Suke Quto coffees are all Organic and Rainforest Alliance certified.
At a time where cups scores in Ethiopia are declining across the country, most crucially due to depleted soils, Tesafye understands that the volcanic soil is precious here and the soil health is vitally important. No chemicals are used at his farm or in these agroforests and producers are recycling organic material through litterfall and root residue as compost for the coffee trees.
