Coffee Story

A 2018 Good Food Awards winner! Gedeb Lot 83 Ethiopia is a natural process coffee sourced from METAD Agricultural Development. After spending years in the corporate sector abroad, Metad's current manager Aman Adinew returned to Ethiopia with the goal of making a difference for his family and community. With Adinew at the helm, METAD has strengthened the local community with employment and healthcare opportunities. METAD's workforce is over 70 percent female and healthcare is provided for employees. METAD also sponsors a state-of-the-art elementary school with more than four hundred students. The group was the first to partner with Grounds for Health in Ethiopia to implement a successful cervical cancer screening program for women within coffee growing communities. METAD also boasts the only private cutting-edge SCA certified coffee quality control lab on the African continent used to train both domestic and international coffee professionals.


Coffee Review

95 pts      Aroma: 9     Acidity: 9     Body: 9     Flavor: 9     Aftertaste: 9

Blind Assessment: High-toned, crisply sweet-tart, richly savory. Jasmine, roasted cacao nib, lemon verbena, grapefruit zest, aromatic mushroom in aroma and cup. Balanced sweetly tart structure with a rich umami undercurrent; buoyant, satiny mouthfeel. The flavor-saturated finish leads with floral notes (jasmine) and closes with crisply sweet citrus (lemon verbena, grapefruit zest).

Bottom Line:  An elegant, sensuous experience of a dried-in-the-fruit or natural-processed Ethiopia coffee. Harmoniously sweet, tart and savory with a stunning range of aromatic intrigue.
