Ethiopia Washed Hambala

Details

Hambela coffee is sourced from METAD Agricultural Development PLC (METAD), a third generation family owned business with 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 Guji and Sidama zones that has become the Hambela Coffee Estate. METAD has strengthened the local community with employment opportunities including a workforce that is over seventy percent women, educational opportunities including sponsorship for a state-of-the-art elementary school with more than four hundred students, and healthcare for employees. 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 coffee quality control lab on the African continent. It is from this foundation that estate coffee flourishes.

Delicious! Review by Shay
This Ethiopia coffee is from the Yrgacheffe region of Ethiopia, and tastes different from most African coffees. It has a subdued sweetness, and less of that citrus-y aftertaste many coffees from Africa have. The lack of citrus helps keep down the acidity, making this coffee a wonderful cup to unwind with in the afternoon.
I always look forward to brewing this one at work and sipping on it throughout the day. (Posted on 2/1/2013)
