The Ethiopian Citrus story: Tega & Tula are actually two adjacent farms, named after the two nearby Tega and Tula villages, 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.
The farm is certified organic and produces both Washed and Natural coffees. 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, who left the ECX and decided to invest in a farm himself to produce specialty coffee entirely. He found the perfect spot in the famous Kaffa Zone, considered the absolute birthplace of Arabica coffee. He 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.
