This coffee comes to us from Tayebo Aba Bulgu, who is a member of the Tokuma group in Agaro, Ethiopia. The Tokuma group consists of smallholder farmers who are pushing the boundaries of both traceability and control of their production. We’re really excited to be working with these cutting edge producers. Tayebo’s coffee is a classic Agaro profile with candied citrus, bergamot, peach, and rosey florals. 

In the context of the history of Ethiopian coffee, which has largely been sold through the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange, the idea of being able to have single producer lots is still a fairly new concept. Individually held export licenses have provided greater agency for producers to market and sell their own coffee, while improving the traceability of Ethiopian coffees. However, it is still common practice for these Ethiopian producers to buy cherries from their neighbors, process, and sell it in order to have more meaningful volumes of production to export. The producers who make up the Tokuma group differ in that their lots are comprised of only coffee that they green. This model creates lots of coffee that have the utmost degree of traceability, while allowing producers to keep their production costs low, especially during years like this one where prices for cherry are inflated. Because of this the Tokuma producers are able to achieve higher profit margins, while pricing their coffees competitively.
