Ethiopia

Westrock works directly with
partners in Ethiopia to ensure
traceable, transparent and
quality coffee is available for
our coffee blends.

Ethiopia is located in northeast Africa, and borders Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia, Kenya and Sudan. The western half is a mountainous region bordered by the Great Rift Valley. The east is mostly arid plateau, and the highlands are warm with summer rainfall, though droughts occur. The populated area is the north central region. Subsistence farming is the main activity, though droughts have led to famine.

Coffee is the main export in Ethiopia, producing some of the most distinctive flavors in the world. It is also the main coffee consuming country in Africa, utilizing almost half their annual production.
