Not just a drink, coffee is a ceremony called bunna maflat, that plays an essential part of Ethiopian social life. The ceremony can take hours and is often conducted by a woman who wears a traditional dress.
The ceremony begins with washing and husking coffee beans on a heated pan. When the beans turn black, they are ground by hand and run through a sieve.
Then it's slowly stirred into a clay pot known as the jebena.
Coffee is sweetened with sugar and served in tiny cups for friends and family who've watched the process.
As the Ethiopian proverb says, "buna dabo naw," or "coffee is our bread."
