Tade GG (mountain forest farm) is a private farm owned by a gentleman named Tesfaye Bekele. The farm is 221 hectares in area and sits between 1,830 and 1,950 meters above sea level. The general landscape of the farm is characterised by highly sharp and rugged hills, ridges, plateaus, valleys and flats creating stunningly dramatic setting. The regions’ volcanic soil is bursts with nutrients, creating deep red and brown top-layer of soil.​

Tesfaye Bekele is so passionate about coffee farming that he has traveled extensively throughout Central and South America to visit coffee farms and learn about different cultivating and processing methods. Tesfaye says when you buy his coffee you not only pay him, you pay the community and the environment. Tesfaye uses native heritage trees as shade and a percentage of his land is dedicated Forest and wildlife area. Tesfaye also funds a local school which he built with profits from his farm.

The Coffee is picked and dried and raised African beds ​when the early seasons rains stop. The Coffee is dried for 14 days on average, and the kept as lots by the day of processing. At the end of the season, any exceptional cupping lots are kept and sold for a premium as Micro-Lots and the rest are blended and graded into grades.
