Coffee Info

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 that has become the Hambela Coffee Estate. METAD strives to strengthen the local community with employment opportunities (such as 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), and medical support (featuring 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. METAD also has the first and only private, state-of-the-art, SCAA certified quality control lab in Africa, used to train both domestic and international coffee professionals.

Overall Score: 94

"Delicately sweet, complex. Honey, frankincense, wisteria, nectarine, pistachio in aroma and cup. Richly vibrant acidity; very silky mouthfeel."
