Ethiopian Coffee: Little piece of Home


As an Ethiopian, to experience a little piece of home, making Ethiopian traditional coffee and roasted sweet corn for finding more comfort from home while living abroad is the best way to go.

While having coffee in Luxembourg, I couldn’t help to contemplate a profound saying which resonates with my soul like it has never been before. The author of The Man Within My Head, Pico Iyer says, “…home lies in the things you carry with you everywhere and not the ones that tie you down.”

    Lovely photo and sentiment!

  2. Is the corn accompaniment? Or do you drop it in the coffeee? A silly question maybe, but I often add vanilla, a slice of ginger, star anise or a cinnamon stick to my coffee. Your coffee pot is a wonderful shape, and its stopper a gorgeous colour. The quote is a bonus.

      It is not a silly question 🙂 Yes the sweet corn is an accompaniment. And I love adding spices like clove, cinnamon and Ethiopian Cardamon ( Korerima) in to my coffee as that is how we usually make coffee in Ethiopia. Star anise is a good idea, thank you for sharing your way of having coffee sounds very warming maybe I should try it. Thank you for your kind comment as well. God Bless!
