Coffee is – next to petroleum – one of the most valuable agricultural commodities traded at international markets (Arslan and Reicher, 2010; Rodriquez, 2012). Today, coffee remains one of the most important sources of export income for East African nations (i.e. Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania). Ethiopia is known to be the birthplace and the primary centre of biodiversity of Arabica coffee (Daviron and Ponte, 2005; Labouisse et al., 2008). The main production systems in Ethiopia are forest coffee in the traditional way, semi-forest coffee, garden coffee, and plantation coffee owned by the state (Labouisse et al., 2008; Stellmacher and Grote, 2011).
