An Organic coffee from a single farm, Tega & Tula Specialty Coffee Farm, created in the year 2000 by Ahadu Woubhset. Tega & Tula are actually two adjacent farms, named after the two nearby villages of Tega and Tula found in the Woreda neighborhood, or district, of Gibo in Kaffa, Ethiopia. The total area of the farm is 500 hectares in size, with almost 400 hectares planted with coffee.

The farm is certified organic and produces washed and natural coffees, and has not only a wonderful flavor profile , but also complete traceability back to the producer — and nowadays down to the "block", or sublot. Ahadu is an entrepreneur who was a founding member of the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange executive team, who left ECX and decided to invest in a farm so that

produce entirely special coffee. He found the perfect spot in the famous Kaffa Zone, which is considered the absolute birthplace of Arabica coffee , and decided to start an operation that aimed to preserve the natural beauty of the area, support the local community, and, of course, produce fantastic coffees.

Both the 74110 and 74112 varieties were developed by the Jimma Agricultural Research Center in the 1970s, bred for their profile as well as their resistance to disease, pests and droughts. Bunawashi was launched in the year 2006 , after being selected by scientists in 1974 for its resistance to Coffee Berry Disease. It is called Bunawahshi from "buna", the Afan Oromia term for coffee, and "Washi", the place where it was selected .

Ethiopia

Ethiopian Coffees
Among coffee producing countries, Ethiopia holds an almost legendary status not only because it is the birthplace of Arabica coffee, but also because it is simply different from everywhere else in the coffee world. Unlike the vast majority of coffee growing countries, the plant was not introduced as a cash crop through colonization. Instead, growing, processing and drinking coffee is part of the everyday way of life, and has been for centuries since trees were discovered growing wild in forests and eventually cultivated for domestic use and commercial sale. From an outsider's perspective, this adds to the sheer complexity that makes Ethiopian coffee so difficult to fully understand - culturally, politically and economically, as well as simply culinarily. Add to that the fact that the genetic diversity of coffee here is unmatched globally — there is 99% more genetic material in Ethiopian coffee alone than anywhere else — and the result is a coffee lover's dream: cafes that are spoken with the reverence or romance that Ethiopian cafes are. The Profile of Ethiopian Coffees Coffees will vary based on a number of factors including variety, process and micro-region. As a general rule, natural processed coffees will have much more pronounced fruity and deep chocolate tones, often with a bit of wine character and a syrupy body. Washed coffees will be lighter and have more pronounced acidity, although individual characteristics will vary. Here is a very basic breakdown of what we look for in cafes from some of the Yirgacheffe micro-regions in the Sidama region. ADADO: Delicate stone fruit with citrus and floral layers that create a balanced structure. ARICHA: Complex and almost tropical, with a juicy fruit base and a sugary, floral sweetness. CHELE: Sweetness of baked sugar more like caramel or toffee, almond and a floral, citrus tone. KOCHERE: Fruit tea supported by citrus and stone fruits.
