coffee ceremony

 Coffee ceremony's are ritualized forms of making and drinking coffee. Coffee beans are roasted over hot coals and then ground using a pestle and mortar. They are put into the jebena (the pottery pot pictured) to boil the coffee over the coals.
 The host pours the coffee into small handle-less cups and serves it with sugar but not milk. The grounds are then brewed two further times for the traditional three cups of coffee.
And the coffee is served with popcorn - always a hit with the boys who don't get to drink the coffee!
