As per the findings, poor quality in coffee drying(drying red coffee beans on floor), collecting and mixing of better quality coffee with the poor one were some of the major challenges faced in the coffee supplychain. The opportunities are the availabilty of huge production of coffee product and the conducive climatic condition of the area. Concerened government body is supposed to monitor the illegal work of local traders regarding mixing better quality coffee beans with the poor one that has dropped market demand at the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange level.
