Considered the birthplace of coffee, Ethiopia produces some of the most unique and fascinating coffees in the world. Ethiopia Natural Hambela is sourced from METAD Agricultural Development PLC (METAD), a family owned business that operates the Hambela Coffee Estate. METAD has a rich history that began after World War II when the Ethiopian Emperor awarded Muluemebet Emiru, the first African female pilot and family matriarch, with land in the Harrar and Sidamo regions.
The Hambela Farm is located in the fertile Oromia regional State, in Guji zone, between the two districts of Gedeb and Hambela, approximately 477 km (~297 miles) south of Addis Ababa (the capital of Ethiopia), and 20 km (~12.5 miles) east of Dimtu Town (the capital of Hambela). The farm is 200 hectares.
METAD strives to strengthen the local community with employment opportunities including a workforce that is seventy percent women, educational opportunities including sponsorship for a state-of-the art elementary school with more than three hundred students, and healthcare for employees including a partnership with Grounds for Health to implement cervical cancer screening for women in the community. METAD provides technical assistance and shares modern farming equipment with other local farmers.
A medium light roast, this coffee has a blueberry and citrus aroma. Sweet, fruity, and full of complexity. The taste includes layers of berries, chocolate, and a citrus finish that make it unique and delicious. Excellent cup of coffee no matter how it is brewed. Highly recommended.
