  • Hunkute, Ethiopia

    ”This is a coffee which we have bought for four years now, a fairly small cooperative in the Dalle region in Sidama. It seems to be one of the magic spots, where the micro region with fairly simple conditions keeps delivering stunning coffee year after year; a clear and juicy cup with a lot of apricot and white floral notes.” /Joanna Alm, Head roaster

     

    Hunkute is made up of two washing stations (the imaginatively named Hunkute 1 and Hunkute 2) and is located in the region of Dalle in Sidamo. It is made up of 270 members. Hunkute 1 is located at 1850 masl and was started 10 years ago. Hunkute 2 is located at 2150 masl and was started around 5 years ago, (both collecting from the members and taking in from surrounding farmers that wants to deliver ).

     

    All of the co- operatives in Ethiopia belong to unions (in this case the Sidamo Union) which sell and export the coffee. These unions also take care of dry milling and grading before export. Hunkute is superbly run aiming not only for quantity but also for quality in the final cup.
