Method: Washed method. Washed coffees focus solely on the bean, as both the skin and fruit flesh is washed away. It lets you taste you what’s on the inside, not the outside. Washed coffees depend almost 100% on the bean having absorbed enough natural sugars and nutrients during its growing cycle.

The Benti Nenqa washing station is named after the kebele, or village, where the coffee is harvested. The growers from the surrounding community bring their cherries to this washing station in Hambela for further processing. .

This coffee from the Benti Nenqa kebele is grown at an elevation between 1900-2250 meters. It is fully washed using an eco-friendly wet processing infrastructure. An organic coffee, METAD has certified not only its own farms and processing plants but also the farms of those participating in the out-grower’s program. Yellow Bird is not certified organic, but the coffee it self is.

METAD’s values are driven by the community and environment. They reinvest a portion of their profits back into the community for initiatives that include building clinics, funding the local elementary school,  and constructing wells as a source for drinking water. They are committed to environmental sustainability, practicing protection methods in wet processing to avoid ground and water pollution and and including intercropping farming techniques and crop pollination.
