Ato Tesfaye Bekele is one of the people that put Guji specialty coffee on the map. While the Guji zone was dominated by cattle farmers, he sought new ways to make coffee popular in Guji. “I don’t consider myself to be a coffee farmer, because coffee is everything to me. All my time and energy are placed into the beans that I harvest and process.” Tesfaye Bekele, the founder of Suke Quto Farm, explains “I come from a coffee-producing family, so during my childhood, I started to work with coffee early on," Tesfaye continues, “At first, coffee did not have my interest. The labor was hard, and the days were long. But after several years of study and other work, I returned to my home in the Shakisso woreda, Guji. I found myself in coffee again."Suke Quto Farm is stretched out over the highlands and valleys of the Odo Shakisso woreda. The volcanic soil found on the farm is very fertile. Tesfaye keeps the soil in shape by organic recycling through litterfall, root residue from coffee, and shade trees. Suke Quto coffees are all Organic and Rainforest Alliance certified. Tesfaye works together with 171 outgrowers that deliver cherries to the Suke Quto Washing and Drying Station. Besides partnering up with outgrowers, he owns another 221 hectares in the highlands of Guji. More than 200 seasonal workers are needed to pick and process the Suke coffees.Read more! https://www.trabocca.com/our-coffees/ethiopia/guji/suke-quto-farm/

First of all, when the package came in the mail I could SMELL the coffee just holding it. It smelled divine! I kept sniffing it before I even opened the packaging.
Second, I was very disappointed to not taste it. But it was supposed to be a gift. I was severely tempted to just keep it. However, my wonderfully fabulous boss has been very overworked and I don't want him to quit and then be replaced with a boss from hell. Seriously, the other two locations have hell bosses. I don't want that. So, this was part of my ongoing endeavor to make him feel appreciated and never leave because I would be big sad. And he said it tasted great, so thanks for the help Mad Priest. Shout Out to best Boss Jim!
This is our favorite coffee
This has been my favorite coffee for many years now. I will continue to purchase.
A good roast that we enjoyed
Dang, this is good. I can never look back to store-bought coffee (which is why I buy the 5 lb. bags).
Awesome Expresso Shots!!
Perfect blend for your morning coffee!
So soft and fits well! Always get asked about what the shirt so get to tell them about Mad Priest Coffee!

I love a light roast/ breakfast blend type coffee in the morning. Sloth dispelling is the best and believe me I have tried ever one sold at both grocery stores and my local coffee shop. It is an amazing brew! Try buying whole bean and grind it yourself like I do for extra good morning coffee!
I hadn't tried a coffee from Peru for a while but wanted to try something new. When I drank this for the first time, I noticed just how smooth and silky it was without a lot of acidity. This is a perfect coffee for your regular morning drink, or also if you tend to share coffee with friends (I share with my coworkers), this is a great choice. It's so good and well rounded that even the "I only drink natural process coffees from Africa" crowd will be pleased, and the "I only drink the darkest roast available" crowd will get to experience something new and eye opening without being turned off from too much acidity. It's on my regular order list now because I enjoy it so much!
I love a variety of coffees as long as they are great quality.. Mad Priest has never disappointed! So delicious!
I have the Benediction Espresso Blend on automatic re-order. It's the best I've found for my morning latte. Thanks, Mad Priest Coffee!
Love it! Smooth and delicious.
