In terms of growing conditions, Ethiopian coffee can be divided into three groups: forest, garden and plantation. The forest category includes trees growing in forests in natural shade, mainly in the southwest of the country. Garden is the most common type of coffee growing and provides the bulk of production. Trees grow next to the farmer's house. Fewer shade trees and farmers artificially limit shade by pruning. Fertilizers are often used. The Plantation category is relatively rare. Coffee grows on large farms where basic farming methods are used: pruning, fertilizing, mulching, breeding. Therefore, single estate coffee from Ethiopia, i.e. coffee from a single farm, is relatively rare.
