Ethiopia, the birth place of coffee has 5 growing regions, each producing very distinct characteristics from the other.  In the south of Ethiopia is a district called Yirgacheffe which is just north of the Kenyan border.  Yirgacheffe is currently producing the most exotic flavor profiles in this country and possible the world.
