We have been tasting coffee from METAD for the past several years. Each year the coffee has continued to improve, and each year we discussed working with Michael and Aman Adinew to bring their coffee to Groundwork. Unfortunately, in years past, the coffee was not certified organic, so bringing it on was not an option for us. So we came up with a plan to work together to attain organic certification for the farm and hoped that the coffee and production worked out in everyone’s favor. The truth is, we really wanted to work with this group; their social and community impact echoes our own sentiments, both Michael and Aman are amazing people with a great story and history in coffee, and their product is a truly beautiful representation of Ethiopian coffee. This year, all of the collaboration, feedback, and effort paid off. We are happy to bring you the first harvest of certified organic Ethiopian coffee from the Hambela Farm produced by METAD. This is possibly the best coffee that has graced our cupping table this year, and we are really excited to share it with you.
