Peach Jam & Honey
This pulped natural offering is another testament to Suke Quto’s wildly successful approach to the crop they love. Sort of a mix between traditional washed and natural processes, this coffee has all of the beloved attributes commonly found in both styles, while boasting the incredible regional notes from the Guji zone. Fruit-forward while still being mellow and richly sweet, followed by the satisfyingly smooth finish.

This is a fantastic lot of coffee from the prolific Suke Quto farm in Guji - one of the premier coffee producer area known for its sweet, bright coffees. Tesfaye Bekele was integral to the development of the specialty coffee sector in Guji, and uses his expertise and connections to both grow incredible coffees on his own land and operate a community washing station for small-holders to process their coffees.
This lot is giving us smooth sweetness for days -- a bright peach note reassures us this is a Guji coffee, while some richer honey flavors and a nice creamy finish give the cup a subdued, refined feel. Suke Quto is a special place that produces special coffees - and it really does seem like you can taste all the care and effort that went into this bean when you brew it. We're excited to bring this coffee to the club, and we hope it fills you up with joy as well!
