Coffee Cultural Mainstay

Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee. The coffee plant was first discovered in Kaffa, a highland region located in the south west of Ethiopia. It didn't take long for this discovery to spread to the Arabian Peninsula in the mid 14th century, then to Istanbul in 1555 and later to other parts of the world. Ethiopians introduced the use of coffee beans to the world.

Today Ethiopian coffee ceremonies are common after large meals, even at restaurants. The ceremony consists of roasting raw coffee beans in front of the guests. Then grind the beans, perfuming the room, and brews it in a clay coffee pot, also known as the jebena.

Ge'ez Ethiopian Restaurant provides Ethiopian coffee Ceremonies to your functions upon request- booking is essential.
