Just like the Ethiopians, coffee is an important part of the life of Eritreans – especially people in Asmara. Attending a coffee ceremony should be a good opportunity for you to determine who makes the better brew. It is a mark of honor and respect, or a sign of friendship to be invited to a coffee ceremony.

Oh, by the way, Asmarinos love to have coffee Italian style. Their favorite is the coffee Macchiato or Stained coffee – coffee tinged with steamed milk froth.
