The Tega & Tula Specialty Coffee Farm was established 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, 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, and it not only has a wonderful flavour profile but also full traceability down to the producer—and nowadays down to the “block,” or subplot. This particular block is called Wushwush, and is a 29.11-hectare subplot located in the Tega farm. It was planted in 2001, and has Wushwush, 74112, and 74110 coffee varieties. Both 74110 and 74112 were developed by the Jimma Agricultural Research Center in the 1970s, bred for their profile as well as for their resistance to disease, pests, and drought. Wushwush or Wush Wush variety was selected as a CBD-resistant mother plant in 1975 in the Kaffa zone, where Tega & Tula is located. It was released in 2006 for cultivation.
