Ethiopia: A Sweet Coffee Goodbye in Nazret

Seble and Membre, teachers on the KG campus
I visited the English Alive Academy campuses for the last time today. Took photos to replace those lost when my camera was stolen.

The teachers gave me a beautiful coffee ceremony:

The cups are clean and ready, as is the herb to add to the cup.

Fragrant and beautiful flora grace the "stage."

Membre roasts fresh coffee beans on a charcoal brazier.

Mekdes culls poor roasted beans, leaving only the good. In the jabena is hot water.

Mekdes grinds the coffee.

Mekdes adds the freshly ground coffee to the jabena, filled with hot water.

An experience treasured.
