We absolutely love naturally processed Ethiopian coffees, they bring all the juicy goodness that you need in your life.
Lara from Right Side stumbled across Mensur’s farm during her visit to Ethiopia last year and we are SO glad that she did. Mensur Aba Hika has been expertly growing coffee for over 40 years and now, due to changes in the Ethiopian coffee market regulations Right Side are able to deal directly with him. This means that he receives a much better and well deserved price for his coffee.
The varietal in this lot is pretty special as it’s a traditional local Ethiopian strain, known as 74110, developed in the 70’s at the Jimma Agricultural Research Centre. The original ‘mother tree’ was in the village of Bishari, in the Oromia region. You don’t often get to drink this varietal, so if it’s your first time - welcome.
Mensur hand picks the coffee cherries once they reach the perfect level of ripeness and then transfers them to raised African beds. Here they are left to dry in the sun until the desired degree of humidity is reached.
