Coffee break

Ethiopian woman brews coffee at EM-PACE symposium.

Ethiopians know how to make a great cup of coffee, and they should because the country is known as the birthplace of the beverage. This woman was providing a traditional Ethiopian coffee service during a symposium for the Ethiopia-Michigan Platform for Advancing Collaborative Engagement in Addis Ababa. The beans are roasted and brewed right before your eyes.  (Photo by Amy Conger, assistant vice provost for global and engaged education at U-M.)
