Ethiopian coffee and espresso bar opening in Toronto

The team behind the Ethiopian restaurant Nunu know that people are intrigued by coffee. That's why they're opening up a cafe right next door to their West Queen West eatery.

"It's sort of a fusion of third wave espresso bar and Ethiopian coffee culture," says co-owner Chris Rampen of the incoming Bu'na, which translates to coffee in Amharic. He and his wife Nunu hope to have their new space at 1176 Queen West ready by early 2016.

Rampen notes that they've bought all their coffee directly from farmers in Ethiopia. And, they'll be hand roasting it on site daily.

Along with standard espresso beverages, Bu'na will offer traditional Ethiopian coffee brewed in jebena, clay pots. On the food front, customers can expect items such as teff and buckwheat crepes; both sweet and savoury options will be available.
