Coffee is Ethiopia's main export and it is from Ethiopia that the beverage first spread to other countries, such as Arabia, India, Ceylon, Java, Brazil, and Columbia.
The quality of Ethiopian coffee is world renowned but along with its exquisite taste comes a rich cultural tradition. The Ethiopian coffee ceremony is a 2 hour ritual practiced up to three times a day between family and friends. It is a special moment that binds members of the community together to transcend their daily lives.
Participate in this unique ceremony in Messob's authentic Ethiopian restaurant. Breath in the rich aroma of our coffee as the beans are roasted over an open fire and our trained servers gracefully pour a thin golden stream of coffee into each little cup from the jebena (a black clay pot).
Experience at Messob an old Ethiopian proverb: Coffee is our Bread!
