ABOUT

Suddi is a cooperative in the Nekemte appellation, in the region of Anfilloo. It collects exceptional forest coffees with fruity aromas, grown in a volcanic environment with fertile soils and a complex biodiversity. Its ecosystem relies partly on coffee cultivation. Our Belco teams found and identified this rare forest coffee with the help of Shambe, who was born here. By increasing recognition of this coffee, we are helping to protect the unique local natural heritage and maintain its agroforestry-based farming practices.

THE TERROIR OF SUDDI

Latu Gudina Suddi, known as Suddi, is a primary cooperative that is part of the Torban Anfilloo Cooperative Union.
Suddi in Oromo denotes a flower endemic to the region. Latu means branch of the tree and Gudina means to grow. The cooperative’s member farmers chose the name to communicate their hope that it will develop and grow.
The village where the cooperative is located is called Suddi Omi, named after the Suddi flower and a local tree, the Omi. Legend has it that people from the surrounding countryside used to stop under an Omi on their long journey to the market. The village was named after the Suddi flowers that grew nearby, characteristic of the region and which they used to admire.
And it’s true, the site is quite remarkable – surrounded by 3 volcanic pitons, the coffee trees unfurl beneath a primary forest of endemic species that are becoming increasingly rare in Ethiopia. Located relatively far from the main villages and in steep, hard-to-access areas, the forest is still relatively unaffected by massive logging. Trees of impressive diameters give an indication of how long the species have been present. The Suddi soil is unique, with a surface composed of volatile volcanic residues including ash and with good fertilising properties that strengthen the plant life. Suddi also has mineral water springs.
