Ethiopia - Hambella - Natural

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Hambella is a standout operation located in the heart of the Guji zone on rich volcanic soil, known for its commitment to quality coffee production and community empowerment. farm itself spans 200 hectares and is staffed by a dedicated team of 28 full-time employees, which grows to over 700 during the peak harvest season. 70% of the workforce comprises women, reflecting the farm's strong focus on inclusive employment practices.

In addition to their own coffee production, Hambella Farm actively supports local farmers through a collaborative program that pairs them with agronomists and processing experts. This initiative is designed to help elevate the quality of coffee produced in the surrounding areas, with some of this local coffee being purchased and sold alongside Hambella’s own beans.

While Hambella’s coffee is cultivated in the rich soils of the Guji zone, the processing facilities are located just across the district border in Gedeb, Gedeo zone. Utilizing an innovative eco-pulper, Hambella’s processing method eliminates the traditional fermentation stage, resulting in remarkably clean beans and significantly reduced water usage. We also love the fact this coffee is from a single estate in Guji where since 2002 it has been distinguishing itself from Yirgacheffe and Sidamo.

When producing natural coffees, the cherries are spread on raised beds and sun-dried for 21 days, with frequent turning to ensure even drying before the beans are bagged.

Founded by Aman Adinew and his brother Michael, Hambella Farm is rooted in a legacy of excellence. Prior to establishing Hambella, Aman served as the Director of Quality Control at the Ethiopia Commodity Exchange (ECX), where he oversaw the creation of Ethiopia’s first specialty coffee lab.


The results from this coffee? A real jammy Ethiopian natural with big tropical blueberries notes and a body that of smooth Lindt milk chocolate.

Chief Dylan said “This coffee reminds him of the first time he bit into a blueberry mochi on a hot summer's day”.

  1. Choose the right container: It's important to store your coffee beans in an airtight container. Look for a container made of a material that won't absorb odors, like glass or ceramic. Avoid using plastic containers, as they can impart a plastic-like taste to the coffee.
  2. Keep the container away from light: Coffee beans are sensitive to light, which can cause them to degrade more quickly. Store your coffee container in a dark place, such as a pantry or cupboard.
  3. Keep the container away from heat: Heat can also cause coffee beans to degrade. Avoid storing your coffee container near a heat source, such as a stove or oven.
  4. Store at room temperature: Coffee beans should be stored at room temperature, between 60 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Avoid storing coffee beans in the refrigerator or freezer, as moisture can cause them to spoil and lose their flavor.
  5. Use whole beans: It's best to store whole coffee beans rather than ground coffee. Ground coffee has a larger surface area, which makes it more vulnerable to oxidation and degradation.
  6. Avoid air exposure: Exposure to air can cause coffee beans to oxidize, which can lead to a stale or sour taste
