So... they don't traditionally let their coffee "rest"?

We have a terrific Ethiopian restaurant around the corner, and its owners
live on our block.  At our block parties, they do the traditional coffee
ceremony, roasting the beans in a ceramic pan over a charcoal brazier,
grinding it by hand and serving it in little earthenware cups. It's very
dark and very sweet, though not as syrupy as Turkish/Arabian (ibrik-brewed)
coffee.  It's the highlight of the party---and I always order it at the end
of the meal when I eat at the restaurant. (For Chicagoans, or prospective
tourists, it's Ethiopian Diamond).
