Nekemte is a coffee appellation which applies for coffees growing in the district of Anfilloo, Oromia region. Seven different highland forests are providing this coffee, some of which reach 2400 masl, giving to the coffee its complex fruity flavors.
This coffee benefits from a double certification: it has the organic and the bird friendly labels. In addition of being havens for birds, shade coffee plantations provide habitat for myriad insects, orchids, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and other less well know denizens of tropical forests. Furthermore, shade trees protect fragile soils from erosion, provide nutriment and suppress weeds, thus reducing or eliminating the need of chemical herbicides and fertilizers, lowering farming costs.
