Märet Café- 100% Ethiopian Coffee. (Märet = ground in Amharic).

A new Ethiopian coffee brand, which contains 3 types of packages.3 rounded packages, containing 250gr. of fresh exported coffee beans with different amount of caffeine. 5 canes of ice coffee (3), caramel machiatto drink and ice mocha.

All the packages are decorated by illustrations that I drew, based on old Ethiopian art and illustrations.

What’s Unique?
The Ethiopian coffee is considered good coffee, but will never be designed in a cutting edge way. My personal brief was to give the Ethiopian coffee and culture the respect it deserves, by exposing their incredible coffee ceremonies, tradition and art to the world.
