Grown at an average altitude of 2000 metres above sea level, this lot is comprised of Ethiopian heirloom varietals and has been carefully compiled by METAD, our current partners on the ground in Ethiopia.
The lot has been farmed in and around the Alaka village, in the Hambela department of Guji, and is comprised of cherries produced at METAD's own estate, Zewde.This coffee has been naturally processed, and has undertaken a long and delicate sun drying on raised beds. This remarkable micro-lot has been dedicated to the grandfather of the brothers behind the METAD project, and as a result bares his name.
You can expect to find notes of jasmine and strawberry, with an excellent lavender aftertaste. Expect a clean but distinct profile from this exceptional coffee with a distinct cleanliness for a fully natural coffee.
This is our first single farmer project coming out of our of our favourite producing countries, Ethiopia. This is the third year we've been purchasing this coffee, following a visit in December 2020.
