    The history of Jimma, Ethiopia is full of rich stories and world-changing discoveries, like the coffee-plants that grew wild in the ancient kingdom’s forests. It was known for its skilled horse riders and thriving markets, and its elaborate wooden palace, carved by hand with ancient tools. Today, Jimma’s treasures include modern wonders like a university and airport, but its people maintain the skills of their ancestors, passed down like heirlooms. Skilled carvers still use ancient tools to carve whole chairs out of tree trunks. Skilled horse riders can still be heard galloping down modern roads. And skilled farmers still bring natural treasures like coffee beans and tea to thriving markets. Discover the fascinating history of one of Ethiopia’s many ancient kingdoms in our look at the origin of coffee.
