Basha Bekele runs his small 3-hectare farm in the village of Bombe, Sidama, with the help of his wife and two children. The coffee is grown under the shade of the native forest. Basha grows the 74160 variety; a common variety across Ethiopia due to its high yield and resistance to Coffee Berry Disease. The variety was selected by the Jimma Research Centre from wild plants in the Metu-Bishari forest, western Ethiopia.
