Speaking of coffee, I have to mention Ethiopia, which has a long history of coffee and is recognized as the birthplace of coffee. And there are a wide variety of coffee. It is estimated that there are 10000 to 15000 coffee varieties in Ethiopia today, but most of them have not yet been formally identified.

Coffee cultivation in Ethiopia

Ethiopia is located in the northeast of Africa, bordering Eritrea with Djibouti, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan and Kenya. The territory is dominated by mountainous plateaus, most of which belong to the Ethiopian plateau, and the central and western regions are the main body of the plateau, accounting for 2ax 3 of the country. And the East African Rift Valley runs through the whole territory, with an average elevation of nearly 3000 meters. Under the influence of high altitude, the climate is pleasant, and the annual average temperature is 16 ℃. The whole year is roughly divided into dry season and rainy season. Coffee is mainly grown in the south, which has fertile soil. It can be said that Ethiopia has unique natural conditions for growing coffee.

Yega Xuefei Yirgacheffe producing area

Ethiopia has many famous coffee producing areas, such as Sidamo, Jima, Haller, etc., while Guji and Yirgacheffe originally belonged to Sidamo, but became a coffee producing area independently because of their unique flavor.

The Yegashifi producing area originally belonged to the Sidamo producing area. Because the coffee beans produced in the vicinity of the town of Yegashafi have a unique floral and citrus flavor, they are independent and become a famous coffee producing area in Ethiopia. With an elevation of 1700-2100 meters above sea level, it is one of the highest coffee producing areas in the world, with fertile soil, rich water resources and suitable climate, so the coffee has a special citrus and floral aroma.

Kocherezi producing area of Kochel

Yejasuefei itself is a small town of about 20, 000 people, and the nearby three well-known small producing areas, Wenago, Kochere and Gelena Abaya, are also divided into Yejashafi because their coffee flavor is not much different from that of Yejasuefei.

The coffee production mode in Cochel area is mainly based on the local small farmers to send the output batches to the cooperative for unified processing. The region is dominated by the cultivation of coffee and is the main source of income for the region. Because the production area is relatively famous, the income is better than that of other Ethiopian villages, which also allows the introduction of advanced processing equipment, with good equipment, so that the washed coffee produced in the region has a high level of performance. with a clean sweetness of sweetness and citrus complexity.

Native species Heirloom

When seeing some information about Ethiopian coffee beans, "Heirloom" appears on most of the beans, and Heirloom translates into Chinese to mean native species or family heirlooms. Because there are 10000 to 15000 coffee varieties in Ethiopia, many small farmers do not know what they are growing, so they now call the mixed coffee varieties Heirloom.
