Jasmine, orange, toffee
Region: Tega village, Bonga, Kibo, Kaffa
Farm: Tega (Tega and Tula Coffee Farm)
Altitude: 1830–1870 masl
Processing Method: Washed
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, who 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 Kewo, and is a 49.82-hectare subplot located in the Tega farm. This is the block where the coffee nursery is located, as well as the washing station. It's also surrounded by UNESCO heritage forests.
