We first came to experience Tade GG back in 2017, a distinguishably complex washed Ethiopian and one of our first encounters with a single-owner farm in Ethiopia. While that doesn't sound significant, it's worth clarifying that the majority - nearly all - of the regional coffees exported from Ethiopia is an accumulated sum of hundreds or thousands of smallholders from their respective districts or towns.

Tade GG is the pride and joy of Tesfaye Bekele, one of his many lots in the region of Shakisso, Oromia. In his devoted pursuit to producing excellent coffee, Tesfaye has travelled and experienced first-hand some of the best practices by established producers in Central and South America. Tesfaye's coffee has been in numerous spotlights, as the coffee-of-choice in recognised events such as roasting competitions and the Ethiopian Cup of Excellence.

The environment surrounding Tade GG is characterised by dramatic landscapes of sculpted hills, valleys, and wide plains. A combination of the cool micro-climate and nutritious volcanic soil leads to desirable conditions for the coffee trees to develop their cherries with an impressive expression of flavours.

After harvest, Tesfaye pulps and ferments the coffee for anywhere between 35 - 48 hours, depending on humidity and ambient temperature. The coffee is then washed thoroughly before drying for 9 - 15 days until they're ready to be milled, roasted, and evaluated. 

Although it's not a region-scale co-operative, the quality that Tesfaye conveys with his coffee is evidence of expertise in processing and his careful use of the terroir. This clean, tropical, structured coffee is a stand-alone presentation of what coffees from the Oromia - and wider Guji - region are capable of presenting in the cup.
