Ethiopian Coffee is called ‘Bunna’ (boo-na) by the Ethiopians. The ceremony begins with washed coffee beans and roasting them in a coffee roasting pan on small open fire/coal.

The long handled pan is slowly held and shaken over the fire until the coffee beans start to pop and crackle. The roasted Ethiopian coffee fills the air and is walked around the room so the smell can be approved for the eager (but relaxed) guests. The whole roasted coffee is then ground and put in a traditional pot made out of clay called ‘jebena’ (J-be-na) with water and boiled in the small open fire/coal furnace.

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 day. Don't be in a hurry though - this special ceremony can take a few hours. So sit back and enjoy because it is most definitely not instant
