The Kaffa Afromontane rainforest in Southern Ethiopia is recognised as the birthplace of Coffea Arabica, a coffee plant which grows wild only in Ethiopia.

As one of the last remaining evergreen coffee forests in Ethiopia, the Kaffa Zone (from which the drink derives its name) is regarded as a site of international importance and lies within the Eastern Afromontane Hotspot, one of 34 global priority areas for conservation.

Apart from nurturing Ethiopia's most important export crop, the Kaffa Zone is home to over 60 mammals and more than 200 birds as well as high numbers of endemic species and high floristic diversity spread throughout its cloud forests, rainforests and wetlands.

Photographer Bruno D'Amicis has documented the wildlife and coffee production in this rarel
