Ethiopian affogato

On trips to Ethiopia one of my favourite things by far has been Ethiopian coffee, made in homes and cafes from freshly roasted and ground beans and served quite strong in small cups with sugar, and if you're lucky, a sprig of rue.  Sometimes spices such as clove, cinnamon and cardamom are thrown in with the roasting beans for a delicately spiced version. 

smbunalalibela0001.jpgEspresso drinks are also very popular in cities, especially macchiato (with incredible 'macchiato art' of which any London barista would be envious).  Italian influence in some areas of Ethiopia is also visible in the food and architecture.
