Aframomum corrorima is a species in the ginger family, Zingiberaceae.

It is an ingredient in berbere, mitmita, awaze, and other spice mixtures, and is also used to flavor coffee.[3] In Ethiopian herbal medicine, the seeds are used as a tonic, carminative, and laxative.[4]

The plant is native to Tanzania, western Ethiopia[1] (in the vicinity of Lake Tana and Gelemso), southwestern Sudan, western Uganda.[1] It is cultivated in both Ethiopia and Eritrea.[1]
