      Hello KD; thank you for reading my hub! I couldn't agree more coffee being a delicacy. I've had my share of Ethiopian coffee in the past. Much like Arabic coffee (another favorite of mine), it is packed with flavor and complex tastes

      I will definitely have to try this coffee! As of right now, I'm drinking Ethiopian coffee; it is full of flavor! I really think coffee should be treated as wine: it has great taste, some have delicacies, etc.

      Great Hub!
