The Gedeb site is located in the fertile SNNPR regional state of Gedeb, found within the Gedeo zone, approximately 437 kilometers south of Addis Ababa. We’re pleased to work with METAD each year to source some of Ethiopia’s finest, most consistently high-quality coffees. METAD, a family company founded by community leader Aman Adinew, operates a washing station and dry mill in Gedeb, Gedeo zone, employing 28 permanent staff and 700 seasonal employees between this washing station and their partner station in Hambela. Seventy percent or more of these staff members are women, and in addition, METAD partners with over 700 out-growers to provide best practices on growing, harvesting and selling coffee.
