About Ethiopia Guji Hambella Grade 1 Natural

Our Arabica Hambela Natural is sourced from Sibu Coffee Producer and Exporter, collected by members from the Hambela District located in the fertile Oromia regional State, in West Guji zone which is surrounded by Yirgachefe and Gedeb District.

The soils in the southern and western parts of the coffee-growing regions of Ethiopia are of volcanic origin, with a high nutrient-holding capacity for clay minerals. The soil type of the area is ‘Clay-loam’ soil. All of the coffee-growing Regions have fertile, friable, loamy soils, with a depth of at least one and a half meters. The topsoil is dominantly dark-brown or brownish in colour, with a PH ranging mostly from 5 to 6.8 (water extract).

About Ethiopia

Known as the birthplace of coffee, many are familiar with the legend of Kaldi, the goat herder, who ate a coffee cherry after noticing that his goats became remarkably more excited after eating them. Today, Ethiopia produces some of the finest coffees in the world, adored for their diverse and floral flavours.

MTC Sucafina’s history in Ethiopia began over 20 years ago through an international brokering house. Much more recently, in January 2016, we fully opened our Representative Office in Addis Ababa. Since then, in a short period of time, the operation has become an integral part of our East African coffee offerings, allowing us to export these special qualities to clients all over the world.

Having a local presence allows us to select the best lots from the Ethiopia Commodity Exchange (ECX), exporters, cooperatives, and producers. We take a collaborative approach with shippers who are thoroughly vetted by the office, led by Adane Gudina.
