The western part of Ethiopia is one of the greenest, wildest and for tourism yet undiscovered places of Ethiopia. Between Jimma and Gambela, wlid forests and vast coffee plantations shape the landscape. Coffee is an important topic in this area, where coffee is believed to come from.
Bonga is the legendary place where coffee was first discovered by the young shepherd Kaldi who notices that his goats were hyperactive after they chew the fruits of a certain plant. The original tree, mother of all coffee plants is believed to be found here. In the dense green surrounding of Bonga a variety of old churches and historical sites are said to be hidden and yet hardly uncovered to the public. National coffee museum of Ethiopia is also located in Bonga, which is approximately 26km away from our farm.
