Coffee is increasingly becoming a part of Western culture, it is most likely that they will not think of the more than “25 million people around the world [that] base their livelihoods on its production”. Coffee is the major agricultural export crop, providing currently 35% of Ethiopia’s foreign exchange earnings. The coffee sub-sector is also important in terms of providing income for a large number of households. This study assessed the impact of coffee production and household income in Anfilo wereda Oromiya regional State. The study also investigated factors influencing coffee production and incomes of household. The study followed a multistage random sampling procedure. Data collected from 116 sample households was used in this study. Descriptive statistics were employed and logit model (logistic regression) was used to identify factors influencing coffee production and sample household income.
