Did you know that Ethiopians enjoy popcorn with their coffee and the Ethiopian “coffee ceremony” is an elaborate tradition that can last several hours?If you need a few ideas on how to brew a great tasting cup of coffee at home, check out these great ideas from Starbucks:Starbucks Brewing TipsAt Starbucks, we recommend keeping the four fundamentals of brewing a great cup of coffee in mind: freshness, proportion, water and grind. Always use fresh coffee. If it’s open, use it within a week, and never freeze coffee. From a proportion standpoint, we recommend 2 tablespoons of coffee for six ounces of water. Use filtered water heated to just off boiling. If possible, grind coffee fresh and make sure it is the right consistency for your brewing method.
Great News! We are giving away 3 Ethiopian Coffee Heritage gift packs to 3 lucky Passion for Savings readers. Each Gift Pack includes a 1 lb. bag of Ethiopia coffee, a Starbucks Siren Mug, and a $25 Starbucks gift card!
