Ami Vitale

Photo by @amivitale. Ramla Sharif roasts coffee inside her home in the village of Choche, Ethiopia. Legend has it that this is the birthplace of coffee. The region is home to the largest pool of genetic diversity of coffee in the world, more than all other coffee-producing countries combined by a huge margin.

This week I’m sharing images of women around the world, exploring their lives and the vital roles they play in their communities.

@analifur ps: tem um café da etiopia aqui em casa, quando você estiver boa da sinusite eu faço pra gente


@analifur é uma forma super tradicional de beber café na etiopia: torrar e moer na hora. tradicional nem sempre significa bom HEHEHEHE

I cannot believe this is not a painting. Spectacular photo.


Ein sehr berührendes Bild, welches uns daran erinnert, dass wir täglich mit einem Kaffee ein Teil dessen sind, und die Menschen, die uns den erst ermöglichen, nicht vergessen dürfen!


All the pictures here are gold 💯


Yes! Coffee is indigenous there - no wonder Ethiopian coffee is so delicious. Beautiful pic



This is a good picture but I don’t know if it is because of good lighting or place… maybe composition 😉👍


@amyvItale this is an absolutely beautiful photograph! I will be contacting you soon with pictures of the finished painting I did of Fatu. You have me permission, but I want your approval of the painting before I proceed with the print making and sale.
