East African Imports & Ethiopian Restaurant

Our story

Berhane Amanuel came to America from Ethiopia in 1987 and settled in Seattle. He married Megan Eyre, and together they opened East African Imports in 2002. They believed they could bring exceptional quality foods, spices, and products from Ethiopia to the United States. Their retail and wholesale business has expanded and also includes a newly opened restaurant. All products are purchased directly from Ethiopia. The spices are dried, ground, mixed and packaged in Ethiopia. Berhane’s mother runs the operations in Ethiopia making her special blend of spices while maintaining a superior level of quality control. Over the past ten years the reputation of East African Imports has grown and expanded, supplying outstanding products including special spice mixes, coffee, tea, teff, grains, baskets, clothing and more keeps customers coming back because of consistent quality and fast, friendly customer service.
