How to host an Ethiopian coffee ceremony

The Ethiopian coffee ceremony is an important traditional custom, dating back hundreds of years. A sign of respect and friendship, it is performed to welcome visitors into the home and to celebrate an occasion. 
To host your own coffee ceremony, you will need:
  • Ethiopian coffee beans (sorry, Moccona won't cut it this time around!)
  • Sugar
  • Frying pan
  • Coffee grinder / grinder attachment on food processor / mortar and pestle
  • Espresso cups or small tea cups
  • Incense or fragrant candles
  • Decorative flowers and greenery
  • Popcorn is traditionally served, but you can opt for any sweet or savoury snack

Set the scene by scattering greenery on the floor, wafting fragrance and playing some background Ethiopian music. When guests arrive, begin to roast the coffee beans; every guest should be invited to smell the roasting beans. Serving the coffee is a focal part of the ceremony. Arrange your cups tightly together on a tray and pour the coffee in a continuous stream from about a foot above the cups. Didn't work the first time? Don't worry - three rounds of coffee are served throughout the ceremony so you'll have plenty of practice!
