Strongest tea ever brewed.
The tide recedes, but leaves behind
bright seashells on the sand.
The sun goes down, but gentle warmth
still lingers on the land.
The music stops, yet echoes on
in sweet, soulful refrains.
For every joy that passes,
something beautiful remains.

At Alem Bunna, another of Addis’s independent coffee shops, its marketing manager Getachew Woldetsadick says the city’s cafe culture is booming because young professionals lead such busy lives.
"They do not have time to sit at home for an hour roasting coffee," he says.
Yet such customers also say they are attracted to the quality of coffee available.
"I come here every day as I work nearby - I prefer this style," says 27-year-old accountant Tesfaye Abdissa, sitting inside Mokarar, another of Addis’ coffee shops.
Mokarar’s owner Tigist Tegene says the secret to the popularity of her firm’s coffee is that they roast it using an old wood-fired oven. “Customers like the shine and flavour this gives the beans,” she says.

It was cool because I got a chance to speak young Black males all over the country about this new idea called Thug Life. Which is a new kind of Black power. Young black males out there identified with Thug Life and I couldn’t handle it. I could handle it, but not right away. Imagine you have 14,000 people ready to do whatever you want. When you have all over the country people waiting to hear what you want to do. All of a sudden I got people in the penitentiary, big time OG criminals, calling me telling me they want me to lead their movement.
But yall think black people love him because he was “just a rapper”..
At 25, Tupac was setting himself up to be a modern day Activist. He took all the teachings from his Black Panther mother and other role models whist growing up, and took a different approach to get his message heard, which was through rap. And made many features at events and discussions like these..
Tupac was assassinated simply because his influence over the young black males started to become uncontrollable, he become a positive light to many and woke black men from their systematic brainwashed unconscious mindset.
They didn’t want another Malcolm X on their hands,
But he was “just a rapper”…
