We are proud to be releasing a washed process coffee from the Tega and Tula Farm. We first became aware of the Tega and Tula Farm in 2018, with the help of our friends and import partners at Cafe Imports. The founder of the farm, Ahadu Woubhset, was also one of the member of the executive team that founded the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange, known as the ECX. He decided to leave the ECX to start a farm that was focused entirely on specialty coffee. In 2000 he chose a spot in the Kaffa zone, which is known as the birthplace of arabica coffee, started the farm with the goals of preserving the areas natural beauty, help support the community, and produce fantastic coffees. Interestingly, the area where the farm was started was not well known for producing specialty coffee, which is a testament to Ahadu's efforts. They are a larger farm of 500 hectares in size (400 of which is devoted to coffee production) and grow a number of cultivars, including wild varieties which are also found in the nearby Keffa bio-reserve. The farm is certified organic and produces both Washed and Natural coffees that not only have a wonderful flavor profile but are also full traceability down to the producer, and even certain subplots from those producers! This lot that we are offering is from the highest area on the 86.92 hectare subplot, which the farm named Kasha, a subplot that has produced award winning coffees in past years.

When tasting this coffee, we noted flavors of blackberry, pomegranate, lemon candy, and black tea, supported by a round, wine-like body, with a refreshingly crisp finish. 

All coffees are available in whole bean only. 

We roast and ship Monday through Thursday.  Orders placed by midnight will be roasted and shipped the next roast day.  Orders placed Thursdays or later will be rolled to the next Monday.
