Female farmers’ contributions to agriculture in Ethiopia is considered crucial, ensuring the proper farming, picking and managing of crops on a daily basis. Male farmers, on the other hand, take the role of trading coffee in the market place. With a substantial proportion of Ethiopia’s population relying on agricultural produce, growing coffee is more than just a paid job to the locals. Growing and using coffee is an integral part of the Ethiopian lifestyle, and the great taste of coffee sourced here can be attributed to this commitment. From African farms to coffee mugs all over the world, Ethiopian coffee production is honest, natural and providers coffee-lovers with high-quality beans to savour and enjoy.
Although climate change is set to widely affect coffee growth across the country, farmers are planning to move their crop farms to higher grounds in order to continue their wide-scale coffee production.
At Bibium, we like to know as much as we can about all the different coffees, as we find it helps us coax out the true flavours of each different coffee bean. If you'd like to learn more about the different types of coffee, check out our Coffee Pot Of The World series. So far, we have covered Brazil, Coloumbia, Costa Rica, and now, Ethiopia.
