Mormora Coffee Plantation is located in the Shakisso ‘woreda’ (administrative district) in the south of the Guji zone of Ethiopia’s Southern Oromia State.

Mormora is owned and managed by Haider Abamecha and his family. The farm located just outside the town of Shakisso and sits at an elevation of 1,800–2,100m above sea level. Coffee has been growing wild in this area for centuries. Ethiopia is widely celebrated as the birthplace of coffee, and is the only country in the world where coffee is indigenous.

Coffee is grown organically on the farm in beautiful, wild forest conditions where the loamy soil is fertile. The trees benefit from a mixture of natural shade plants, which—as well as protection from the sun—provide a rich source of leaves and debris which decompose on the forest floor.

Mormora farm is also organic certified (though this particular lot is not), and the land is managed in sections, with the trees undergoing 25 year cycles before being stumped to rejuvenate. New trees from their seedling nursery are planted every year. The seeds originate from local heirloom varieties that were collected nearby (that they refer to as the “mother tree”). The family works with local small-holders as well, buying their coffee, and also helping by offering training at the farm level as well as at their mill.
