This coffee is grown at 1900-2200 meter altitude on clay mineral soil. They are fully washed and fermented after depulping, then soaked overnight and dried in the sun on raised beds.
Sourced from METAD Agricultural Development PLC. METAD's story began with Mulumebet Emiro, who was Africa's first female pilot in 1934. After WWII, she was awarded farmland, lush with coffee trees. She transformed the farmland into a private coffee estate. METAD's coffee is all either produced or sourced by their staff- who are 70% women- in accordance with their unsurpassed quality standards and graded in METAD's certified coffee quality lab. METAD grows and sources some of the best coffee in Ethiopia and they do so in a manner that honors their family heritage. METAD provides educational opportunities, University scholarships, sponsorships to a state of the art elementary school and healthcare to their employees. They were also the first to partner with Grounds for Health in Ethiopia to implement a successful cervical cancer screening program for women within the coffee growing community.
These beans deliver a cup of coffee with flavors of peach, jasmine, candied lemon, and apricot.
