Ethiopian traditional Coffee ceremonies.
Revocup Coffee Roasters are proud to present our ancient coffee tradition. For Ethiopians coffee is not just a simple beverage; It is a part of social, cultural, and spiritual life of society. Ethiopians have harvested and enjoyed coffee for many centuries. Their love for coffee leads them to develop strict coffee preparation rules. Over time, this practice becomes a daily ritual in contemporary life. The coffee preparation and ceremonies are a unique cultural heritage of Ethiopian society that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. These coffee ceremonies are a true display of how Ethiopians deeply care for their cherished bean called coffee.
Come and experience the transformation from crop to cup. You will witness first hand a vibrant and colorful ritual where green coffee is roasted before your eyes, filling the air with fruity and floral aromas. Then enjoy a meticulously prepared, delicious cup of coffee. You will have a chance to chat with Habte Mesfin, the co-founder of Revocup Coffee Roasters and a native of Ethiopia, about the cultural and social significance of the traditional coffee ceremony.
In order to remain true and authentic to our culture we will not charge for this service. Performing a coffee ceremony for guests is a gesture of friendship. However, donations will be accepted for our library project in the coffee growing community in Ethiopia.
