Source Information

Deep in the heart of Ethiopia’s coffee country nestles the 200-hectare Hambela Estate. This land in the Gedeo zone was awarded to the first Ethiopian woman to become a pilot-- Muluemebet Emiru, by Emperor Haile Selassie after WWII. Wild coffee grew there, and together Muluemebet and her husband set about to transform the land into a coffee legacy that now includes a washing station and dry mill near the village of Gedeb.

Today, grandson Aman Adinew manages the family’s company, METAD. With 28 permanent employees and 700 seasonal workers of whom more than 70% are women. Together with the coffees more than 700 growers outside the estate, the community is strengthened by educational opportunities--university, scholarships, and sponsoring at the grade school, as well as healthcare for employees. Muluemebet would be proud.
