About this coffee :

Hunkute is located in the Dalle region in Sidama and is made up of two washing stations where the coffee is being processed. This coffee is produced by Wonsho smallholders, located on the highest altitude of 2150 masl, for its clear and vibrant taste profile.

They are collecting cherries from both the members of the cooperative and surrounding farmers who want to deliver their cherries to the washing station. Most farmers delivering to Hunkute site 2 have about half a hectare to two hectares with an average of 1500 trees per hectare. Throughout the year, organic fertilizer is common at the farms. 

Cherries are hand sorted for unripe and overripe cherries by the farmers before they go into production. First, the coffee is de-pupled, meaning that the skin and pulp are removed from the beans by a machine. Then the beans are being fermented under water for 72 hours. After that, the coffee is separated by density in water channels and rinsed with clean water. Before the water is going back to nature, the water is neutralized by filters to not harm nature. The coffee cherries are dried on 20-25 days on raised beds until it reads a moister level of 11 to 11.5%, 

The coffee is delicate, yet well balanced with vibrant notes of guava and pomegranate, finish with soothing jasmine floral qualities.
