Coffee ceremony:

This traditional ceremony is widespread across Ethiopia. Coffee beans are successively washed, roasted over hot coals, and grinded in a mortar. The coffee grounds are then brewed three times in a clay pot. The three servings have decreasing strength. Incense and other aromatic herbs are burned separately.

Almost every house has one to make traditional clothes, in particular the ubiquitous cotton wraps (shamma).
