Fresh Roasted Coffee Retail Bag Caffe Fantastico

Ethiopia Hambela


Exquisite elegance with a deep and subtle complexity.  Honey florals layer with guava, raisin and golden rum.  Hints of lemon curd and coconut.  Luxurious and balanced in the cup.


Ethiopia is widely known as the birthplace of coffee, growing seemingly endless heirloom varietals of coffee to explore.

Ethiopia Hambela is sourced from METAD, a family owned business that operates the Hambela Coffee Estate. METAD has a rich history that began after World War II when the Ethiopian emperor awarded Muluemebet Emiru, the family matriarch and first female African pilot, a plot of land, which has become the Hambela Coffee Estate.

Hambela is a 200 hectare farm located deep in the heart of the Sidamo region. METAD strives to strengthen the local community with employment opportunities that include a workforce comprised of over 70% women, educational opportunities that include the sponsorship of an elementary school that has over 300 attendees, and healthcare opportunities for its employees that implements cervical cancer screening for women in the community.  METED provides technical assistance and shares modern farming equipment with other local farmers.  They also have the first and only private state-of-the-art SCAA certified coffee quality control lab on the African Continent, used to train both domestic and international coffee professionals.
