Ethiopian Coffee Morning

Legend has it that the coffee plant, coffee arabica, originated in Ethiopia. Today, Ethiopia produces the 5th largest crop of coffee each year in the world. The coffee ceremony is still one of the most recognisable parts of Ethiopian culture.

Across the country, people are heavily reliant on working animals for transport and agriculture. SPANA has been helping the working animals of Ethiopia since 2003. Host a traditional Ethiopian coffee morning and you can raise funds for the donkeys who carried your coffee beans on their backs.

Giant Ethiopian Bread

In Ethiopia a Giant Bread (or defo dabo) would be baked by the women of the household and kept ready for serving at coffee time. Maybe it could serve as the perfect treat at your own Ethiopian coffee morning?
