Ethiopia Tega & Tula Estate

Ethiopia Tega & Tula Estate
Tega & Tula are actually two adjacent farms, named after the two nearby villages of Tega and Tula, found in the woreda, or district, of Gibo, in Kaffa, Ethiopia. The total farm area is 500 hectares in size, with nearly 400 hectares planted in coffee, and was established in 2000 by Ahadu Woubhset.
The farm is certified organic and produces both Washed and Natural coffees, and it not only has a wonderful flavor profile but also full traceability down to the producer and nowadays down to the block or subplot. Ahadu is an entrepreneur who was a founding member of the executive team at the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange, he left the ECX and decided to invest in a farm himself in order to produce entirely specialty coffee. He found the perfect spot in the famous Kaffa Zone, which is considered the absolute birthplace of Arabica coffee, and decided to start up an operation that aimed to preserve the natural beauty of the area, support the local community, and of course produce fantastic coffees.
This particular block is called Zingaj, and is a 63.93 hectare subplot located in the Tega farm. It's the first block that was planted with seedlings and CBD-resistant varieties in 2000. The coffees planted are bred for their profile as well as for resistance to disease, pests, and drought.
