The Hunkute cooperative is found in the Dalle district in Sidamo, Ethiopia, and it has just over 900 member farmers. The management is strong and therefor they succeeded to produce highest quality year after year. 

The farmers bring the coffee cherries to the two washing stations where they are sorted by hand to remove under-ripe and over-ripe cherries. After the sorting the cherries are pulped and soaked under water for 24-36 hours before they are carefully rinsed until completely clean. The wastewater is filtered through Vetiver grass before it goes back into nature. The coffee is hand sorted again after being washed to remove impurities and defects. Dried on raised beds for about 10-15 days. 

Hunkute is milled and sold through the Sidamo Union that have managed to increase the quality of the coffee and prices for the farmers through a transparent and sustainable system. They are helping with setting up the washing stations and new cooperative structures. This has so far contributed to a significant increase in payment for the producers. We are very excited to support this cooperative and even more excited to be able to offer this extraordinary fully organic coffee.
