There is only coffee

5 minutes

The rich traditions of Ethiopian coffee culture, and the hard work behind it

Throughout many parts of Ethiopia, coffee is at the very centre of everyday life. The Coffea arabica plant is thought to have originated in the region, and coffee production is part of the country’s economic backbone, with roughly 15 million Ethiopians working in the coffee trade. There Is Only Coffee captures the community-building process of sustainable coffee cultivation, and the ultimate reward that those who work in small, co-operative farms receive for their strenuous work: a taste and aroma that, as one cultivator says, makes them ‘happy in every way’.
