Ethiopia, in the Horn of Africa, is a landlocked
country that shares its borders with six countries. Notably, much of its
southern border rich coffee terrain is shared with Kenya. Oromia is a renowned
coffee region, with decades of experience in fine Arabica coffee production on
both private and publicly owned plantations. Much of the area is covered in
forest, as well as rainforest, and coffee grows well protected under the tree
canopies. It rains for nine months of the year and then the sun comes out in
time to dry the cherry for harvest.
