A juicy dollop of blueberry jam up front swings in to brown sugar on the finish, before the fruit returns with blackberries and plums lingering on the aftertaste.
Mensur Aba Hika owns an 18-hectare farm in the Jimma region of Ethiopia. The Jimma region isn’t usually known for high-quality naturals; however, Mensur’s attention to detail in processing showcases what can be achieved in this case. It’s exciting for us to showcase the work of a single producer, as previously in Ethiopia, most coffees were being sold via washing stations or regions like Yirgacheffe. This is due to a recent change from the Authorities, who now allow farmers to export their coffee as their own.

Mensur is a key component of the Tokuma Farmer Group. The Tokuma group is a collective of farmers in Western Ethiopia who have organised to market their coffees together and share knowledge with each other that allows them to improve quality. Over the past three years, we have seen overall quality and consistency improve year over year within this group. We have also seen the Tokuma Farmers improve their ability to deliver coffee to the port on time.
