Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee: it is in the forests of Kaffa region that Coffea arabica grew wild. Coffee is “Bun” or “Buna” in Ethiopia, so Coffee Bean is quite possibly a poor anglicized interpretation of “Kaffa Bun”. Coffea arabica was also found in Harar region quite early, either brought from the Kaffa forests or found closer by. It is entirely possible that slaves taken from the forests spread coffee berry into the Harar region, through which the Muslim slave trade route passed.
About Ethiopian Coffee
Ethiopian coffees are available from some regions as dry-processed, in other regions as washed, and regions such as Sidamo, Djimma, Wollegga/Lekempti as both. The difference between the cup profiles of the natural dry-processed verses the washed is profound. Washed Sidamo, Yirgacheffe and Limmu have lighter body and less earthy/wild tastes in the cup as compared to their dry-processed kinfolk.
