Hambela Benti Nenqa Natural
This 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 is managed by Aman Adinew who returned to Ethiopia after many years working abroad at the executive level for multiple fortune 500 companies because he wanted to make a difference for his family and community.
METAD employs a growing workforce that is comprised 70% by women, and shares modern agricultural equipment with other Farmers in the Community. They have sponsored a state of the art Elementary school and partnered with Grounds For Health offering health care services to Local women. METAD also built and operates the first state of the art certified SCA quality control cupping lab in Africa.
