Sidamo is famous for its clean, floral, and citric washed coffees and “high quality” sundried with genuine and unique red berry flavors. The Sidama zone covers a large area with very different growing conditions. You can find highland areas of forest coffees in remote places as well as dense production in the well-known areas like Aleto, Wondo, Darra, and Dale.
All the cooperatives in Ethiopia belong to a Union, in this case the Sidamo Union, that sell and export the coffee. They also take care of dry milling and grading before export.

Hunkute is another Cooperative in Sidamo with extreme altitude and a very strong management. They opened the second washing station in 2012, and are consistently producing high quality. Coffees from both sites are marketed as Hunkute. The coffee is marketed and sold through the Sidamo Cooperative Union. The Union is also responsible for the dry milling, grading, bagging and export.

About 1912 smallholder farmers delivering tiny amounts of cherries daily to the wet miller.

Whole ripe cherries are hand sorted for unripes and overripes by the farmers before they go into production. They are pulped by a disk pulper and graded in the pulper by density: The parchment is then fermented under water for 24-48 hours, depending on the weather conditions. After which graded in the washing channels by water flow that separates the coffee by density. Its then soaked 12-24 hrs in fresh, clean water before it’s moved to the drying tables
