Traditional Ethiopian coffee is served three times. The first serving is called Abol, second serving is Tona and third serving is Bereka. But that doesn’t mean you’ll have to repeat the entire process again! For second and third servings, place ½ a cup of water in the gebena and reheat for a few minutes.
