The original coffee tree is said to be found in the Kaffa Region near Jimma. From this region, coffee was brought to the monks, as they appreciated the stimulating effect which gave them the strength to stay awake and pray all night. By slave trade caravans, the Coffee was brought to the East of Ethiopia, in the Harar region, by the time one of the major trade centers of the Arab world.
