Part of the Sidama Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union, Hunkute is a well-respected and impeccably run cooperative. Made up of close to 1000 member-farmers, lots of coffees brought to Hunkute are grown in the typical Sidamo “garden style” with small holdings for each farmer and low planting densities. Hunkute has two separate washing stations to keep the lower elevation cherries separated from the higher elevation lots. Washed coffees are typically fermented for around 30 hours, while Natural coffees are dried for an average of two weeks. Coffees brought to Hunkute are grown from 1800-2200 meters above sea level and exhibit the typical berry and chocolate profile that has made Sidamo coffees famous.
