The Battle of Lexington...where it all began.  This is when the infamous Paul Revere, and a couple other brave Patriots, made their midnight ride to warn the people around Lexington that the British were indeed coming.  Try out this Yirgacheffe.  It will light up your day, like the hearts of Patriots that night, and the church tower they lit up to signal to prepare for battle!


Ethiopia...the birthplace of coffee.  Lemme tell you a story.  Back in the 9th century, Kaldi, a goat farmer had a bunch of goats.  Kaldi couldn’t figure out why his goats refused to sleep and why they were always so wound up.  Then they got caught red hooved eating the cherries of a shrub.  The coffee shrub.  Kaldi takes this info to the monks.  The monks start using these seeds to stay awake for evening prayer.  Bam!  Coffee is a thing!  So the legend goes.

Ethiopian coffees are widely chosen in blind taste tests the world over, and not just from coffee enthusiasts.  

This particular Ethiopia is from the Limu region and we source it from Cafe Imports.  

Tega & Tula Specialty Coffee Farm, established in the year 2000 by Ahadu Woubhset 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 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. Today, Tega & Tula Coffee Farm is an anchor relationship for Cafe Imports, and every year the lots and the traceability get better.

This particular block is called Gera, and is a 12.46-hectare subplot located in the Tega farm. This block is used for evaluating and determining best practices, and for experimentations and trials. It has the coffee plants with the largest seeds, shaded by avocado. It's a favorite area for pigs and monkeys to visit. It was planted and/or renovated in 2000, and has 75227 and 744 varieties.

Tasting notes: sweet and smooth, tart fruit acidity, mellow floral, cooked berry, cocoa, caramelized sugars.

The Lexington-Ethiopia

Great coffee! I love everything coffee and try to taste as many new and different coffee that I can. This one among other ones they have to offer is great! I suggest to try this out even if it won't end up being your "cup of tea". It's the experience and I personally loved it!
