Tales from the Birthplace of Coffee
The history of coffee in Ethiopia is often related to the legend of the goatherd Kaldi. Kaldi was tending to his goats one sleepy afternoon in the mountain forests of Ethiopia. One day, he found his goats more active than usual and prancing on their hind legs. Surprised with the unusual activity of the goats, Kaldi investigated and found that they had eaten the red cherries from a strange tree.
Kaldi was worried since his animals might fall ill. Next day Kaldi took his goats to the same place and found his goats devouring on the same cherries. Convinced that the cherries won’t cause harm, he took some cherries as well. He felt energetic and awake in an instant. Kaldi took some cherries home and gave a few to some monks in a nearby monastery.
Ethiopia is a landlocked country within the eastern region of the African continent called the “Horn of Africa”. It is one of the oldest countries in existence and boasts a rich history, full of significant historical moments- including the discovery of coffee.

Featuring Our Bona Zuria coffee
Sidama Bona Zuria
Bona (Bona Zuria) is one of 30 woredas in Sidama. (Woreda is an Amharic word and it is similar to District.) The altitude of Bona is around 2,200m above sea level and located at the highest altitude among other coffee-growing areas in the country.
The coffee available in this area is categorized as Highland Coffee and has been exported under the name of Sidamo together with coffee from other woredas in the region. However, it has been recently pointed out that coffee from Sidama Bona is superior to other quality coffee from other districts. Therefore, we believe that it should be labeled Sidama Bona when marketed.
