Want to know more ?

Our SHINY DIIMA comes from the Suke Kuto washing station, nestled in the Oddo Shakiso district of Guji. This region, recognized for its exceptional potential for coffee production, benefits from a unique rainfall pattern.

According to our Ethiopian Flavor Wheel, this coffee falls into the "Diima" category, a term that means "red" in the Oromiffa language. This promises a cup full of intensity, with notes of fruity candies, violet flowers and tropical fruits such as mango and banana.

At the cupping table, we were dazzled by the aromas of tropical fruit and juicy citric acidity, ideal for summer. We also perceived soft floral notes and tea-like profiles, offering very well-structured coffees.

Suke Kuto Drying Station

This station is managed by Tesema Areri and Mr. Sida Udessa, who collaborate with 150 external producers delivering their cherries to Suke Kuto. Regarding production potential, although coffee productivity varies, farmers harvest around 2 to 4 kg of coffee per tree, aiming to plant some 2500 trees per hectare with a spacing of 2x2 meters.

In addition to their collaboration with producers, they also own 80 hectares of land where they started growing coffee in 2015 in a forest area rich in vegetation, with special care given to weeding three times a year. Tesema and Sida are very happy with the management of the farm and the external producers, all dedicated at every step to produce exceptional quality coffee.

About the region
