Let’s be honest, this year has sucked... Well hold your head up- we have good news for you! The always crowd favorite naturally processed Ethiopian coffee from our friends at Hambela just arrived and has your fruit-forward cravings covered. Notes of malted berries, cantaloupe, and sorghum with an impressively viscous body. This coffee highlights the historcal process of drying coffee within the cherry, staying true to the East African flavor culture. This coffee comes from our dear friends at METAD in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Aman and Tariku, who are brothers, run what is widely considered the best Ethiopian coffee sourcing in the world. They also own and farm the famed Hambela estate coffee farm, from which we purchase many micro-lots. This lot from Gedeb in Yirgacheffe is from one of the washing stations they own, which has really developed over the years to become one of the highest quality cups in the country. We’ve purchased this exact lot for the last three years and have worked with METAD for six. They are one of our best partners, and every year our staff and customers highly anticipate what the new season of their coffees has to offer. Overall, METAD is a big part of what we do at Onyx, and over 50% of all our coffees from Ethiopia are either farmed or sourced through them. This year is an exciting new step for them, as they’ve built a state-of-the-art dry milling facility just outside Addis Ababa. They’ve strategically built this on a thoroughfare that can take the milled and stuffed containers of coffee straight to the port without getting too caught up in the traffic around the city. This mill has been custom built to process microlots, as well as the FCL (full container load) lots that they export around the world. This year we were able to be some of the first buyers to cup at the new lab, and all the coffees we purchased through METAD this year were processed through the new mill.
