Coffee ceremony


One of the most enjoyable events you can attend at an Ethiopian Restaurant. Coffee had its beginnings in Ethiopia, being cultivated as early as the 9th century. The Ethiopian re-gion named Kaffa, is the source of our word “coffee”, a direct reference to this coffee growing region. During the coffee ceremony the coffee is taken through its full life cycle of preparation in front of you. Done in a social and friendly manner… the smell of freshly roasted coffee and fragrant incense fills the air… it’s a treat for all your senses. Experience true Ethiopian Culture at The WASS Ethiopian Restaurant. This is a must when you visit Wassie and his staff. There’s nothing like Organic Ethiopian Coffee!

Please order your Coffee Ceremony at the beginning of your meal. A coffee ceremony takes approximately 25 minutes.
