Tega and Tula named for nearby villages in the district of Gibo in Keffa, Ethiopia is a 500 hectare farm where nearly 400 hectares are planted with coffee. The property ranges from around 1700 to 1850 masl. and nurtures many Ethiopian varieties and cultivars. Even ‘wild Keffa Forest coffee’ grows amongst the shrubs. Balanced acidity and sweetness are wrapped in soft jasmine florals, cooked berry and apricot.
Time has told us of the birthplace of coffee and the wild varieties that still grow there beneath the shade of the forest canopy. Complex in both cup and in exchange, coffees that hail from their origin continue to impress us in their improvement. We look forward to leaning into further quality differentiation and farmer specificity from this deeply varied and elaborate world.
