Brewing Bonds - Ethiopian Coffee's Social Magic

The Addis Ethiopian Cafe is reviving the traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony to help people reconnect in a post-pandemic world. During the ceremony, participants engage in conversation facilitated by question starter notes, creating community and new friendships.
