High up on a lush, green plateau, Yirgacheffe shows off the very best of Ethiopian terroir. Our second release from the Chelchele Estate is a naturally processed lot bursting with clean, juicy flavour.

The Cup

The terroir of Yirgacheffe is considered to be among the best in the world. Here we have a naturally processed coffee from the micro-region of Gedeb, where heirloom varietals are bursting with fruity flavour.

Our lot shines in the cup with ripe blueberry and the balanced sweetness of lemon meringue. As it cools, the coffee becomes more fragrant, with the subtle note of jasmine.

About The Farm

Chelchele Estate was established in 2013 on 30 hectares of land in the Yirgacheffe appellation; known for its high-quality coffees. More than 2,000 farmers that live in and around the village of Halo Beriti deliver their best cherries to the station.

Metad was founded by Aman Adinew whose grandparents were already coffee producers and traders. Before Metad, Aman was President of the ECX (Ethiopia Commodity Exchange).

Aware of the potential shortcomings of the Ethiopian coffee sector, they have chosen to promote remarkable coffees while focusing on traceability, ensuring better recognition of the products of their region.

Chelchele is certified organic and Metad has introduced a range of practices to reduce their environmental impact. During processing, steps have been taken to ensure efficient wastewater disposal. On the farm, traditional beekeeping is used to ensure pollination and the planting of mixed crops helps promote biodiversity and maximises land use.

Metad provides regular training courses and seeks to make coffee growing economically sustainable for farmers: paying advances and bonuses to reward quality.

They are involved in projects to promote environmentally responsible agricultural practices, and they financed a road construction and a primary school for 800 pupils in the vicinity of the washing station. Metad covers all expenses for the school. It offers scholarships for 105 disadvantaged students in the region of Gedeo.

The Process

As the first SCAA certified lab in Africa, producer and exporter Metad are leaders in Ethiopian coffee: prioritising quality, sustainability, and traceability, while providing support to farmers and investment within the country.

This lot is naturally processed and benefits from the infrastructure that Metad offers. Ripe cherries are delivered to the station, sorted, and naturally dried on raised beds. With careful monitoring and turning, they deliver a natural coffee that is clean, juicy, and expressive.
