Africa has been a particular focus at #Cheese2013 over the last few days, with producers from African dairy Presidia participating in a diverse range of events. Ethiopian delegates also preformed an authentic coffee ceremony, an occurrence that is very rare to see outside of Ethiopia.
All coffee originates in Ethiopia, but in its birthplace it’s consumed very differently than in the rest of the world, in a ritual that can last hours. Everyday, visitors at this year’s #Cheese2013 can get front row seats to witness this ancient tradition where beans are freshly roasted, hand-ground and filtered.
“It’s slow coffee”, said Roba Bulga who works for Slow Food in Ethiopia. “It’s a time for families and friends to be together and talk. Here in Europe you have dinners that last hours where people chat and socialize. For us, we do this over coffee." http://slowfood.com/international/food-for-thought/focus/193882/ethiopian-coffee-a-ritual/q=1F65D0
