...but isn't it nice to see a local success based on the Starbucks model? After all, this country supplies a big part of Starbucks raw material. Good Ethiopian coffee with international service.

If you want to spend a lovely Sunday morning going through your favorite morning paper, then you should really try the mocha frappuccino at Kaldies. Not every week - this thing is a calorie bomb! perfect blend of whipped cream and espresso:) yum.
