Ethiopia is the birthplace of Coffea Arabica (Coffea Abyssinica) — the species that represents 70 percent of the planet's current coffee consumption. Indeed, coffee appears in Ethiopian legend as far back as the 10th century B.C.
Ethiopia's coffee ceremony is an integral part of their social and cultural life.
An invitation to attend a coffee ceremony is considered a mark of friendship or respect and is an excellent example of Ethiopian hospitality. Performing the ceremony is almost obligatory in the presence of a visitor, whatever the time of a day.
In Ethiopia, people often drink their coffee in three stages known as Abol, Tona & Bereka. Enjoying coffee in this manner creates time and space for the community to discuss different critical issues.
So sit back and enjoy because it is most definitely not instant.
