Recent studies show that about 68% of cultivated land in the Gedeo zone is planted to coffee, and the average sized coffee plot is between 2 to 10 hectares, and yield may be only a few bags up to 60 or so annually. Every smallholder who contributed to our Hada Molecha relies on the cash from their cherries to send their children to school and buy clothing.
Edging close to a two-lane road that hosts at least as many free- ranging goats, cattle and donkeys as it does motorized vehicles, coffee trees grow beneath the shade of the ubiquitous enset (false banana). With its distinctive burgundy central
stem and banana-tree like leaves, this crop is a staple for the area residents.
Dotting the landscape are round, cone-roofed homes with traditional construction of local wood or bamboo coated with cement or mud and roofed by natural fibers. Often several fill a family’s small courtyard alongside the more angular homes made of the same materials, but with square corners and roofs of molded tin tiles in bright red, green or blue. Small children under the watchful eye of siblings and adults hover near the open gate or chase goats nearly as big as they are.
