Coffee still grows wild in Ethiopia’s mountain forests. Ethiopian farmers cultivate coffee in four different systems, which include forest coffee, semiforest coffee, garden coffee and plantation coffee. About 98% of the coffee in Ethiopia is produced by peasants on small farms and it is the country’s most important export. Ethiopia is Africa’s third largest coffee producer. There are about 700,000 coffee smallholders in Ethiopia, of which 54 percent are in semi forest areas. Coffee has been part of their indigenous cultural traditions for more than 10 generations. Halo Beriti Washing Station was established in 2014 and serves 750 smallholder producers, who deliver their coffee in cherry form. Producers generally own less than 1/2 a hectare of land so coffee is traced back to the washing station and not individual producers. This particular lot comes from the well renowned Gedeb area of Yirgacheffe, over 2100 metres above sea level. Up here it is lush and abundant. Picture rich soil with running streams, ancient forests with the sounds of birds and bugs.
