In Ethiopia, unlike the vast majority of coffee-growing countries, coffee was not introduced as a cash crop through colonization. Instead, growing, processing, and drinking coffee is part of the everyday way of life, brewed at home for centuries. Coffee is enjoyed as part of a “ceremonial” preparation, a way of gathering family, friends, and associates around a table for conversation and community. We hope you can enjoy it the same way.
