Come enjoy a delicious Ethiopian brunch with an accompanying traditional coffee ceremony experience. The brunch will include a live performance from Eli Fola, an African-born, locally based singer, saxophonist, and music producer.

A brunch buffet of Bunna Cafe menu items is included with the ticket price. (http://bunnaethiopia.net/bunna/index.php/bunna-menu)

Each guest will also receive a hand-picked African music CD from World Music Institute's archives.

The coffee ceremony is an integral part of social and cultural life in Ethiopia and Eritrea. An invitation to attend a coffee ceremony is considered a mark of friendship or respect and is an excellent example of Ethiopian hospitality. Performing the ceremony is almost obligatory in the presence of a visitor, whatever the time of day. Ethiopian homage to coffee is sometimes ornate, and always beautifully ceremonial.

WMI PLUS experiences are supported by a grant from ConEdison
