We are excited to unveil The Collection, a curated selection of products from the Impact Angel Network's portfolio. The Collection is designed to enable network members and friends of RENEW to share the IAN cheer - and impact - this holiday season. Enjoy select spices from Mama Fresh, finely roasted Arabica coffee from METAD, and Color Cloud Hammocks from the textile company we are planning to invest in next.

Mama's Spices
Add a touch of Ethiopian flavor to your life with spices from Mama Fresh. Though typically used in Ethiopia as a seasoning for stews that accompany injera, Mama's spices are versatile enough to be a staple in the American kitchen. Try them sprinkled on salad, roasted walnuts, french fries or roasted sweet potatoes, or as a seasoning on burgers, chicken or steak on their way to the barbecue.

Hambela Holiday Blend
Enjoy a cup of specialty coffee from METAD's Hambela farm in Ethiopia’s world-renowned Oromia region, a region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica coffee. This delicious cup of coffee is freshly roasted in the U.S. and is sure to delight all coffee lovers.

Color Cloud Hammocks
'Adventure-in-a-bag' Color Cloud Hammocks are the perfect gift for your friends and loved ones who are on-the-go. Made in Addis Ababa by the IAN's upcoming investment, an Ethiopian textile company, the hammocks are easy to transport, can be hung in minutes and will be sure to elicit a smile with their bright and fun color combinations.

Every bag of coffee you purchase employs an Ethiopian for three days.*
Every bag of spice you purchase employs a baker for one day.*
Every hammock you purchase provides wages for a skilled textile worker for eleven days.*

Shop The Collection and share in the IAN's story of impact in East Africa.
