In honor of Women’s History Month, Yelp LA Elite members were treated to a cultural experience courtesy of Sara Gebremedhin, owner and founder of Saraye’s Coffee. Yelpers received beautiful, colorful kits in the mail which were comprised of a traditional clay-like coffee pot known as a jebena, colorful mini ceramic cups and saucers known as sine and a finely ground bag of Saraye traditional Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee.
Woman-owned and operated, this coffee business gives back in a major way supporting humanitarian efforts monetarily, specifically in the war-torn area of Tigray, Ethiopia. Yelpers showed support for these efforts and learned about the intricate process that goes into preparing this bold, tasty, uber-caffeinated drink. Yelpers were stoked to enjoy their homemade brews and take in some major cultural knowledge along the way!
