Yod Abyssinia Restaurant
Coffee Time, Ethiopian Style
Drinking coffee in Ethiopia is not a very Starbucksian experience. You won't necessarily ever have to utter a phrase like "Venti, half-caf, non-fat, no foam, extra hot latte." At least not if you go to a traditional place. The beans are roasted right in front of you, then crushed, and (finally) brewed, the entire experience taking about 20 or 30 minutes. Coffee is often served with popcorn. In other parts of the country, different snacks, like barley, appear with a cup of java.
