Drinking coffee (which in the Amharic language is called „buna”) is an essential element of culture in Ethiopia. Join us on a coffee and tea trip to Ethiopia. Timeless Ethiopia is an Ethiopian tour operator that has been organizing such trips for many years. It is believed that the Ethiopian province of Keffa is the fatherland of this beverage. The traditional ceremony of drinking coffee is commenced with rinsing raw, which means white, seeds. Afterwards, coffee is burnt, ground in a mortar, and used to prepare the beverage. For this purpose, special jugs, heated up on charcoal, are used. The brew is used three times. Another element of the custom is nibbling freshly prepared roasted maize, and the drinking of coffee is accompanied by the smell of incense. For Ethiopians, coffee is the most important exported merchandise. You will learn all about this during our Coffee Tour in Ethiopia.
