Every afternoon at 16:00 the NGO Edge Baandet shares with the public the process and history of Ethiopian coffee making.
There’s a strong coffee smell. It is treated in a totally natural way and can wake up each of the five senses and even make you travel to a different place. In particular, it could bring us from the ArteSano Market at Rototom Sunsplash to Ethiopia.
The Ethiopian coffee ceremony is celebrated every day at 16:00 in the area for the NGO EdgeBaandet in the festival handcraft market. They get back this tradition in which coffee is treated in a more natural and handmade way. The public can see how it is made, every process, from toasting the coffee to carfully milling and boiling it, and leave it to stand so it can be drunk.
The Ethiopian coffee ceremony is much more than a way to know this process, but also you can learn a lot about its country, you can see what does EdgeBaandet do or discover why you need to cover up the boiling water with a plate in which the word ‘pizza’ can be read; What have Italians to do with Ethiopian coffee?, you can find the answer at the ArteSano market, a place where you can find some handmade product process.
Besides, one of the new changes in this edition #celebratingafrica at the ArteSano Market is its solidarity. Every workshop will help to fund some of the EdgeBaandet projects.
