At the Djäbäna Buna or coffee ceremony, in Ethiopia. The first cup that comes out of the coffee beans is known as Abol. It is the most important, the one with the strongest taste, the most aromatic and the most complex body. If those present are gathered together to solve a problem, this cup symbolises conflict, reflection on it and dialogue between the parties. All those who drink must give in to try anf see the other’s perspective, or to respect the person next to them. It is also a cup for socializing and showing respect for the guest and the host.
The second, softer cup is the Tona. Water is added to the infusion but it is still a coffee loaded with aromas and taste. It is the moment to reach a solution, a resolution to the problem presented, or simply a conclusion to the issue of the day. Only then can you move on to taste the third and final cup. Usually small salty bites are such as seeds, popcorn or nuts are served to go with it.
The end of the ceremony materializes in that third, much lighter cup of coffee called Baraka. Because it is so soft, it symbolizes the acceptance of the other and the joy and harmony of the shared moment. It is a joyful drink to which the youngest and children who have not yet participated in the full ceremony, are usually invited to participate. It symbolizes the feeling of community and the common identity of the group.
