About us

Essential Coffee Experience

Our coffee is Ethiopian organic and rainforest. Choose to have it espresso style or relax and enjoy a traditional brew. Love it? Take home some beans or ground to try it in your percolator or plunger.
The  coffee ceremony has been an integral part of every Ethiopian family for centuries. The coffee shrub, native to Ethiopia, was discovered by a shepherd around the 7th century. Since then, the tradition has been at the heart of community life, no celebration is complete without a coffee ceremony. The green raw coffee is washed before being roasted on a metal pan over charcoal. The smoke and aroma from the roasting rise and fill up the atmosphere. Coffee is then ground and brewed in an earthenware pot called a jebena and infused with the aroma of frankincense and myrrh.

Authentic Ethiopian Food

Konjo is about as authentic as it gets - right down to the Ethiopian spice mix, berbere, which forms the basis of many of the dishes. A mixture of 25 herbs and spices, Konjo's berbere mix is made by Abdul's mum in Ethiopia. The Spices are then shipped to Australia or Abdul collects them on his regular visits to Ethiopia. Abdul also hands pick and brings back local arts and craft, which is then for sell at the café.

Ethiopian Jewellery & Craft

Abdul's story as a small business owner started with jewelry making. His first business, Konjo African Jewellery & Crafts opened in 2004 from a desire to tell the world about Ethiopia and its culture. Abdul's passion for always sharing more of Ethiopia subsequently led him to open Konjo Café & Restaurant. Today, Abdul's jewelry and a selection of Ethiopian Craft is still available at the Café.
