Ethiopia Haru Suke
The Ethiopia Haru Suke is is located within the famous coffee birth place, the Yirgacheffe region.

The farm of the contributors are so small that they are usually less than a hectare. As the lands are small, the coffee trees are usually grow with other crops just like in the wild forests. Other crops such as sweet potato, mango and avocados are often grown with coffee, which results in the rich fruitiness and layering of flavors.
