METAD produces its own specialty coffee grades 1 and 2 beans, as set forth by the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA). We also buy coffee from nearby farmers through our out-growers program. Our current farm is located in fertile Oromia regional state, approximately 477 kilometers south of Addis Ababa. We are also pursuing farms in other areas around Ethiopia. For buyers interested in other Ethiopian varietals, METAD will connect buyers with high-quality traceable coffee beans from other superior coffee growing regions of Ethiopia.

Seventy five kilometers beyond Yirgacheffe, deep in the heart of some of Ethiopia’s best coffee country, our 200 hectare Hambela farm includes a washing station, dry mill, drying beds, a large warehouse and guest bungalows. We also have a washing station and dry mill in the nearby village of Gedeb, Gedio zone. Altogether, we employ 28 permanent staff and 700 seasonal staff, 70% or more of which are women, and partner with more than 700 out growers to provide best practices on growing, harvesting and selling coffee.
We welcome visitors to the farm! Guest bungalows are available for buyers who’d like to come and experience the farm first-hand. We invite you to stay with us and enjoy the beautiful scenery, the delicious coffee, and the delightful company of our employees and farmers.
