Kefa was a province on the southwestern side of Ethiopia; its capital city was Jimma. With the adoption of the constitution in 1995, Kaffa became part of the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples Region.

The name is widely known because coffee is suspected to have originated in this province.
