[Homeroast] Ethiopians on the way....

It’s absolutely wonderful!  It’s usually from Sidamo or Yirg and roasted to second crack.  When pounded in a stump it’s the consistency of fine powder so no filter is needed.  It’s brewed over a fire in a clay pot and is very fruity and high toned.  Of course, before serving they sweeten with raw sugar - very sweet.  The coffee ceremony always includes popcorn.  I’ll see if I can find some pictures.

I've been twice and enjoyed the visits.  of course, while in country the coffee I drink has been roasted over a fire and ground with a stick in a stump.
