Buku Abel is a small village in the southeast of Ethiopia with an extremely high altitude of 2300masl; it is located in the Hambela woreda within the Guji zone. Like many other coffees from different parts of Ethiopia, the coffee varietal in Buku Abel was originally found by the farmer specifically around the local area, which then becomes an heirloom passed down from generation to generation.
The coffee trees in Buku Abel are often planted among shady banana plantations which also support the life of various free-ranging livestock. Due to the cold climate and extreme altitude, the coffees grown in Buku Abel is slow to maturation, leading to smaller fruit sizes (similar to smaller mokka varietal) and very hard coffee seeds with high density.
