Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony
Ethiopian coffee ceremony
Receiving an invitation to an Ethiopian coffee ceremony is a symbol of true friendship and respect. This ceremony is a core component to Ethiopian society, and a tradition we've brought to Spokane. The ceremony is traditionally performed when guests visit a friend's home. The often lengthy process of making and sipping coffee typically involves drinking three cups, as the third is considered a blessing. Completing Abol (the first round), Tona (second round) and Baraka (third round) are said to promote a transformation of the spirit.
