Coffee. It’s not just for breakfast.

Coffee is said to have originated in Ethiopia, so it is no surprise that it is offered when visiting friends, during festivities, and in daily life.

We were honored to take part in multiple coffee ceremonies during our time in Ethiopia. The ceremonies are a beautiful walk through the preparing, brewing, and serving of the coffee and are often accompanied by popcorn.

This beautiful woman led the ceremony we received at Kid’s Care Orphanage. This is the orphanage where I first met Fikirte and Konjit in 2009.
