The Coffee Ceremony

In Ethiopia, coffee is not drunk alone. It is a social activity to be shared with others.

Sharing coffee with others means you are ‘at peace’ with them and cultivates community and friendship and has parallels with the ‘slow food movement’.

Coffee is typically made by roasting and brewing on a small charcoal burner. Cups (cinis) are usually laid out in a square on a tray dressed with fresh grass and served with a snack such as fresh cup
