ETHIOPIAN COFFEE

From the birthplace of all coffee the tradition continues…Hand roasted and freshly ground from raw Ethiopian coffee beans and served in small cups from a traditional coffee pot. Ethiopian coffee treated in this way is neither bitter nor thick and is quite different from “Italian & Turkish style” coffee. It is a smooth, pleasant taste, mellow, sweet to the palette and lower in caffeine.

  • ETHIOPIAN TEA – Flavoured with aromatic spices – $3.50
  • HOMEMADE GINGER BEER – $3.50
  • HOMEMADE LEMONADE – $3.50
