Coffee is said to have its origins in Ethiopia and is the favorite drink of many Ethiopians. It is drunk in a unique and traditional way, the coffee ceremony. The coffee beans are roasted over charcoal then ground and placed in a jebena (coffee pot) with boiling water. When ready it is served in small cups, up to three per ceremony. The first cup is called Abool, the second Tona, and the third Bereka. This is a social ceremony and lasts at least for half an hour.
