Abana Coffee is a 300-hectare Estate and social business started by the Omran family, in 2009, in the Gera area of Limu, Ethiopia.

Through an integrated approach of replanting trees with high-yielding, high-quality varieties, changing agricultural management, and implementing strategic fertilizing techniques, Nelsyn has increased productivity to the viable levels the farm experiences today.

It is the first seedling of a lab-made plant. This lot is a hybrid of Timor and Ethiopian Landraces. It shows disease resistance and brings a complex cup.
