West Arsi has always fascinated us with its diverse profiles. Bordering Bale Mountain National Park’s Harenna Forest, an area that just recently started to see a lot of investment from producers, you can now find micro-stations processing wild forest coffee in the most remote areas hardly accessible by car.
