Adado is an area close to the town of Yirgacheffe in the Gedeo zone of Southern Ethiopia. It is named after the Adado tribe, and has some of the highest coffee growing coffee in the country, ranging between 2000 and 2350 masl.

Hierloom varietals are a wild and mysterious mixture of indigenous wildflower varieties, and each zone or village has its own flavour profile, shaped over many years according to growing conditions such as soil and elevation and climate.

Much of the coffee production in Ethiopia is undertaken using traditional methods; under shade trees alongside other crops and without the use of chemicals.
