Abstract

Coffea arabica evolved as an understory shrub
in the Afromontane forests of south-west
Ethiopia. Despite being a global commodity
and Ethiopia’s dominant export, conservation
of the birthplace of coffee has been poor.
While the importance of conserving the coffee
forests is now recognised, conservation
policies have been unsuccessful because they
have alienated local communities.
