Gelana Abaya is located in central southern Ethiopia Gedeo Zone and borders the Kochere Woreda and Guji Zone. It is another gem of a sub-region in the SNNPR region. This area is nestled between Lake Abaya on the west and the town of Yirgacheffe on the East. Gelana Abaya Woreda produces some of the best naturals in Yirgacheffe.
Indigenous heirloom cultivars are grown on small, family-owned farms in the Gelana and Abaya districts at high altitudes, between 1,700 and 1,900 meters. Ripe red cherries are picked and sorted which then place on raised beds to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control for an optimal drying process.
