Arabica coffee originated in Ethiopia. Legend has it that a shepherd named Kaldi discovered coffee by accident: he noticed that his goats became more active after consuming ripe, red coffee berries.
As a labour-intensive crop, coffee provides a livelihood for more than 15 million people in Ethiopia. More than 90% of coffee is produced by small producers.
Please note that this is unroasted coffee which still needs to be roasted before consumption.
