Coffee Tours

Ethiopia Coffee Tours

Coffee can be traced back to the 10th century and the coffee forests of the Ethiopian plateau. Ethiopia is the origin of coffee: it is in the forests of the Kaffa region that coffee arabica grew wild. Coffee is “Buna” in Ethiopia. Coffee Arabica is found in Kaffa, Sidama, Yirga cheffe, Harar, Limmu and different parts of Ethiopia. Kafa, the province in the south-western highlands where they first bloomed, gave its name to coffee. The formal cultivation and use of coffee as a beverage began early in the 9th century.
