Growing up in an Ethiopian household, coffee became a staple feature in our lives. After every day of hard work, our mother would set up the classic Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony that included roasting the coffee beans to glistening perfection while the warm aroma quickly spread through the rooms.
With coffee acting as the medium, this time allowed us to sit in each others company, unwind, and share our time together. After years of watching and learning, we began to prepare the coffee ourselves in the same way our mother had. This familial and cultural practice developed into a deep seeded passion for coffee that ignited the flame of Sheba Roastery. - Axum & Saba
