Known as the home of Arabica coffee, coffee is the largest share of exports in Ethiopia. Among Ethiopia's coffee companies there is METAD, a multigenerational company that began after World War II when the Ethiopian Emperor rewarded a land full of coffee trees in the Guji and Sidama regions to Muluemebet Emiru for being the very first female pilot in all of Africa.
Coffee with the mention Sidamo, expresses less accurately the classic profile of the South of the country, as the area is very large, and includes the Guji region. This region produces particularly fruity and floral coffees. It's also where the Yirgacheffe grows, a coffee recognizable by its silky body and delicate floral and fruity flavors with citrus notes. The Banko Chelchele is slightly similar to the aromas that give it the impression of a fruity tea: peach, kiwi, blackberry, lavender, blackberry, earl grey, and citrus flower. This coffee leaves a wonderful aftertaste in the mouth.
