Hello, Everyone!

It's been a year since Chuncheon City started to observe coffee Festa, which is a coffee exhibition encompassing various artistic events, such as music, dance, art, and other performances.

It was also a chance to let Koreans and visiting ex-pats know about the Ethiopian coffee ceremony with free tastes cups of coffee accompanied by direct experience of cultural coffee-making utensils and popcorn serving, since I was hosting in a booth assigned for Ethiopia, I was able to showcase with friends of the same origin, explain cultural items such as cloth and other ancient household utensils, presented at the booth’s table, and able to talk to visitors, like from Colombia embassy, Colombian friends and visitors, Turkish, Africans, and others. The participation in the festive allowed me to experience Colombian cultural food like Fiambree, made of chicken, olives, corn, onion, and others. It is tasty and juicy. Overall. such multicultural showcases are good in terms of building up people to people relationship, creating networks of various aim business, or others, and learn each other's culture.
