There is something authentic and natural about participating in a coffee ceremony in a mountain village, one opportunity not to be missed by first time visitors. The Farm house visit and coffee ceremony is a very interesting experience that we advice our guests to do, because it is a great opportunity to see how the Ethiopian houses looks like from inside, the tools we use, and how the animals and people live together in this small house!After passing through the mountain village, after the steep road which looks like a twisted rope that hugs around the mountain, will take about 4 hour on foot.
