Bunna Cafe: The African corner in the Cajon del Maipo longer meets 3 years

Coffee is a drink known worldwide, de descubrimiento relativamente reciente -los primeros datos que se conocen son de alrededor del siglo XV-, tiene su origen en África, more precisely in Ethiopia and more specifically in Kaffa province, hence the name “café”.

According to the tradition, el pastor Kaldi se percató de efectos energizantes en su rebaño de cabras luego que estas mordisquearan unas bayas rojas y brillantes de cierto arbusto –el cafeto-. El pastor llevó estas bayas a un sabio, where by chance they fell into the fire, emergiendo un atrayente aroma que ha conquistado a millones de personas hasta nuestros días.

That culture teaches us the Bunna Cafetería family, a corner of Africa in southern America, in a beautiful spot nestled at the entrance of the Cajon del Maipo, the one who just turned his third anniversary.

A great family and dance party was the context of the celebrations of this cultural project, que si bien se cambió de casa desde otro lugar en el mismo sector, remains a benchmark of black culture and Rastafari culture, with various musical activities, gastronomic or exhibitions throughout these years.

“The three years reflect faith in what you are doing, confidence in the proposal: Bunna Cafe, family cultural project, café, good vibes, reggae”, says Jordan, el anfitrión e impulsor de este proyecto.

An Ethiopian jebena.

The coffee ceremony, a true rite of Ethiopians when it comes to sharing this drink, always has a very special place in Bunna events -”café” in Amharic, the Ethiopian language- con la tradicionaljebena” -una especie de tetera de cerámica- al carbón para disfrutar del café como en el origen.

“Bunna is very close to people. People tell me that it feels like home”, destaca Jordán, who adds that “I will tell you about Ethiopia, this is an Ethiopian coffee, Ethiopia is the cradle of humanity”.

“People always feel great, feels part of the culture. If we had a first anniversary with 100 people, the second was with 200, today is already with 300 the 400”, comenta el dueño de casa sobre el crecimiento de la cafetería.

It also values ​​that its public “began to empathize a lot with Rastafari, a lot with the vibes of the Rasta, give the blessings and they are imbued with this vibe”, why “people want good vibes, Blessings, wants good energy, wants good wishes, Bunna delivers that. There is already a word, now they are ‘bunnitos’ days”, Jordan smiles.

Bunna is not just coffee, you can also try other types of delicacies, like pizzas, sushi, various sweets, and therefore it is an excellent place to visit and meet, an unequal place in its genre.

“Bunna Cafe, family cultural project, café, good vibes, reggae”, es el resumen de este lugar en palabras del propio anfitrión.
