Don’t be calling Ethiopian varieties “heirloom” any more. Why not? As Getu Bekele explains, the term is a catch-all referring to plant varieties that have been passed down through generations with no research or development. This in no way accurately describes the development and dissemination of coffee varieties in Ethiopia, built on decades of research and development.
This reference book sets the record straight and it’s the first to publish the wide array of Ethiopian coffee varieties in a publicly available manner.
An essential text for anybody wanting to learn the ins-and-outs of coffee’s most unique and inscrutable origin.
