Coffee in Ethiopia

Ethiopia is one of the world's leading producers of coffee, and many of its Arabica varieties have their genetic roots in wild coffee growing in Ethiopian forests. With such easy access to wild-growing coffee, it's no surprise that Ethiopians drank coffee for centuries before it became the global beverage it is today.

Ethiopia's long coffee heritage has endured into the present era. Each year, Ethiopia produces 860 million pounds of green coffee beans. Coffee is the primary source of income for up to 25% of the population. The majority of Ethiopian coffee growers are smallholders who continue to cultivate their crops using traditional methods.

Ethiopia is recognized for being the birthplace of coffee, but it is also a specialty coffee industry darling because of its great variety of flavors. Coffee in Ethiopia is usually clean, sweet and beautifully acidic. Ethiopian coffee's excellent quality and amazing flavour is due to the genetic diversity of coffee varieties and processing.
