Ethiopia, Hambella

Grown at over 1,900m the Hambella farm is home to some of Ethiopia's most sophisticated producers. The family-owned METAD agricultural group are specialty coffee pioneers with all coffee hand-picked, sorted and washed before drying on raised beds for up to 3 weeks. They produce both washed and natural processed lots with each a trademark representation of floral and fruit-forward Ethiopian coffee.

The Hambella farm covers 200 hectares, employing over 700 people during peak harvest season, 70% of which are women. Curiously, the coffee from Hambella is grown in the Guji zone, but is then processed across the district border in Gedeb, Gedeo zone.

Environmental Impact

All our packaging should be recycled in domestic curbside recycling or at your local recycling centre.

We are almost a waste free business & constantly track and measure our waste and impact on the environment.


We have specifically sourced our packing so it can be recycled.

Our coffee bags are made from LDPE - 4, which can be taken anywhere that recycles plastic bags (supermarkets & council sites). Everything else we use can be put in domestic curbside recycling.


We roast once a week in batches to reduce our carbon footprint. So your coffee might not arrive the next day.

Direct Trade

Whilst Fairtrade (TM) is a great, we believe directly buying from producers means all the money goes to straight to them.
