Coffee is grown over 600,000 hectares, the largest of these areas lie in the South and South Western highlands of the country.  More than 60% of Ethiopian coffee is produced as forest or semi-forest coffee. The four main coffee growing regions in Ethiopia are: Harrar, Ghimbi, Sidama /Yirgacheffe, and Jimma/Keffa.

The highland coffee, Coffea arabica, originates from the rainforests of the south-western plateau of Ethiopia. The forests are the sole home of many wild coffee varieties – an invaluable genetic resource.
