Roast dates: We roast our coffee daily! All weekly orders are dispatched twice a week Tuesdays & Fridays. On all of our coffee bags, we provide you with a roast date.

This fully-washed Yirgacheffe coffee is harvested and prepared by Metad at his farm in Chelchele, situated about 400 km south of Addis Ababa, in the administrative Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples’ Region. The Chelchele farm was created in 2013 on 30 hectares of land in the very heart of the Yirgacheffe appellation, known on the international scene for its high-quality coffees. Metad works with local farmers who supply him with their best cherries. More than 2,000 farmers in the vicinity of Gedeb currently sell all or part of their harvest to Metad. They cultivate high-altitude land (at around 2,000 metres) using old and exclusively manual practices. Metad operates a very precise traceability system thanks to which we know the farmers, who are members of Kebele associations. He has set up a washing station in Gedeb, at an altitude of 2,000 metres, which offers advantages for bean preparation. It is a coffee that takes longer to dry and also suffers less damage from insects, of which there are fewer here. The result is a better-quality coffee with a more intricate cup.
