Virtual events are growing in popularity as pandemic guidelines for public gatherings continue to be enforced.  The virtual event series offers participants an opportunity to enjoy gathering with others who share their passion in an environment that is safe and pandemic-compliant and offers sponsors the opportunity to stay connected to their fans and create new customers. 

Event hosts Sarina Prabasi and Elias Gurmu, the owners and founders of Buunni Coffee, will lead participants through a tutored-tasting of three different Ethiopian coffees—each with a distinct flavor profile, including: light roast Yirgacheffe coffee, the complex and naturally processed medium roast Sidama coffee, and the dark roast Harrar coffee which delivers a chocolate and spicy coffee tasting experience.  Sarina and Elias will talk about Ethiopian coffee, coffee culture, and the Ethiopian coffee ceremony.  They will also share their personal journey of moving from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to New York and bringing the ethos of Ethiopian coffee culture to the business they successfully launched back in 2012.

Tickets ($29) to this special event serve up to four people from a single location/log-in.  All ticket buyers will receive fresh-roasted samples of three varieties of specialty Ethiopian coffee prior to the event—the coffees will be brewed and sampled during the online seminar.  Buyers are able to select whole bean or ground coffee at checkout.  Tickets are limited. Deadline to purchase is 5:00PM on May 21, 2021 or when maximum capacity is reached. Tickets and info:
