Floral and Fabulous

Ask any coffee person where their favorite coffees come from, and most of us will say Ethiopia. No surprise when coffees like this one—full of strawberry sweetness and a delicate, tea-like character—are such beautiful representations. Our Ethiopia Chelbesa comes from a program established by METAD, a family owned agricultural project and mill which offers not only training, but premium prices to its farmer-neighbors in the Gedeb district.

Straight From the Microfarm

Yirgacheffe furnishes the perfect topography, elevation, and water resources to enable production of some of Ethiopia's most exceptional coffees. Chelbesa comes to us via an out-growers program established by METAD, which allows the organization's neighboring farms—many of which are incredibly tiny, like just a few trees in the backyard tiny—to sell their coffee cherry to METAD's Beriti washing station, or mill, where their coffees can become part of stunning lots like these.
