If you’re looking for a cozy and warm beverage this holiday season, be sure to check out Konjo Coffee, a local business that offers traditional Ethiopian coffee and an authentic coffee experience. The name Konjo comes from the Amharic language, meaning “beautiful, tasty, and good,” and that’s exactly what you can expect from the coffee at this shop.
On Saturday mornings, Konjo Coffee hosts coffee ceremonies, an Ethiopian tradition that involves roasting and brewing coffee in a special pot called a jebena. Konjo Coffee invites you to be a part of this tradition and experience a taste of Ethiopian culture. For owner Hirut Crusan, coffee is more than just a drink – it’s a passion that’s deeply rooted in her childhood experiences. She remembers spending late fall weekends on her family’s coffee farm, picking coffee berries to be washed, hauling bags for miles from the farm to her home, and drying and hulling the coffee for her family and neighbors. At Konjo Coffee, every cup of coffee is a testament to this hard work and tradition.
Whether you’re a coffee aficionado or just looking for a cozy spot to enjoy a warm drink, Konjo Coffee is a must-visit destination. Taste the generations of tradition and connection in every sip of their delicious coffee, and support a local business that’s committed to keeping these cultural practices alive.
Konjo Coffee is located at 3701 Le Fever Dr. Kickstart your morning routine and with a visit to Konjo coffee!
