Based on several years of research, and more than 20 dedicated field missions by the authors, the Coffee Atlas of Ethiopia accurately maps and describes farmed and wild Arabica coffee (Coffea arabica) across Ethiopia.

Ethiopia is the home of wild arabica coffee, and Africa's largest coffee producer. Ethiopian coffee is renowned for its diversity of flavour profiles, including the celebrated coffees of Harar, Limu, Sidamo, and Yirgacheffe, a strong relationship with forest production, and its deep cultural association with coffee drinking. Around 15 million Ethiopians are coffee farmers, with coffee export contributing at least 25% of the country’s export earnings.

The Coffee Atlas of Ethiopia maps the coffee landscape of Ethiopia, showing where coffee is (and could be) farmed, and the location of wild Arabica coffee forests. It is an essential resource for anyone working with, or interested in, coffee, and serves as a key geographical reference for Ethiopia.
