Our name, “Mankira Coffee”, originates from Mankira Forest, birthplace of Coffee Arabica. Mankira forest, which is estimated to cover 2,224 Acre (900 ha), is located in southern Ethiopia, Kefa province. Coffee Arabica is a species of coffee originally indigenous to the forests of the Southwestern highlands of Ethiopia.

"Kaldi" the legend of Coffee
A young goatherd named Kaldi noticed one day that his goats, after chewing the bright red berries from a nearby tree, began to prance in an unusually frisky manner. Surprised and intrigued, he decided that he, too, would try the berries, and was soon enjoying their stimulating effect. A monk from a neighboring monastery, who found Kaldi, decided to try some of the berries with his fellow friars chat every evening. They all felt lively and alert during their night prayer. Soon, the news spread and all the monks in the realm were chewing berries before their night prayers. Later, it spread from its birthplace in Ethiopia, to Arabia, Asia, South America, and finally back to the African continent.
