Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee, has over 1.1 million coffee farmers that make up the various cooperatives. Most of these are located in the south and west of the country. The varieties are known as Heirloom, which is a mix of the native Typica hybrid varieties of old strains.
It is thus unsurprising that the coffee-producing industry is given very high priority. This emphasis ensures that the growers and producers in the country’s main coffee-producing regions can remain dedicated to perfecting their craft.
The main coffee-producing regions in Ethiopia are Yirgacheffe, Guji, Sidama, Oromia and Kochere. Coffees from the African continent are generally lighter in body and have high acidity. Here, the heirloom variety of arabica coffee is common.
