    Bonga is the Capital of the Kaffa region, and the coffee grows in deep forested areas. This is the Birth of coffee, as in Bonga there is Menkira, where the oldest coffee genetics have been documented. Bonga is a name rarely encountered when visiting Ethiopia, if at all. But it deserves to be better known: it's said to be the very birthplace of Arabica coffee. The shade provided by forest trees means the beans develop slower, becoming more dense and flavorful as a result. It also keeps the trees shorter, so they're more easily handpicked by locals. Despite their coffee and other natural treasures, both Bonga and the Kaffa region remain off the tourism map. Today the town's population is only about 30,000.
