The piece of land bordering the Sidamo and Harrar growing regions where Hambela Estate now operates was awarded to Muluemebet Emiru by the emperor of Ethiopia. She became the first African female pilot in 1934 and when she inherited the Hambela land after World War II, she decided to transform it into a private coffee estate with the help of her grandfather. Hambela has now grown into a large operation which is managed by the family-owned METAD group. The Estate currently employs a workforce comprised of over 70% women and is emphatically dedicated to reinvestment in the community by sponsoring healthcare for all workers, cervical cancer screening for women, a state-of-the-art elementary school (which houses more than 400 students), and an SCAA-certified quality control lab used to train both domestic and international coffee professionals.
