Nardos Street knows her coffee.
Her Akron-based business Bereka Coffee has been around since 2016.
She’s been roasting and selling coffee and keeping the tradition of the Coffee Ceremony alive that she learned as a young girl while being raised in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Aside from honing her coffee skills and growing a business, Street also has been exploring and reconnecting with Ethiopian dishes.
She’s been entertaining friends and family for years by serving coffee (of course) and working to perfect these traditional recipes from her childhood.
“I grew up helping my mom preparing meals for our family,” she said.
