Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony 1,000 Year Ritual

The Ethiopian coffee ceremony is a ritual that the women of Ethiopia have participated in for centuries. The coffee may be prepared three times in one day for various reasons including a meal.

Ethiopians are serious about their coffee. There is a time to share Buna with family, a time to drink Buna with other women and for breakfast or dinner and may include immediate family, including male members.

The jebena, an often-ornate pot, is used to boil, prepare, and serve the coffee. If you do not have a jebena you serve tea. No jebena means no coffee ceremony.

Items such as a tray with coffee cups and all of the items needed for making coffee are gathered and brought to the space in which the ceremony will take place.

The primary principle of organizing all of the items is to gather everything at once so that the woman preparing the coffee does not get up to collect other items later.

The popcorn is the snack or maybe bread since the Buna is never just coffee. The snack is enjoyed throughout the preparation process and while drinking coffee, with the intent of prolonging the Buna socializing experience.
