Purtroppo il mio voto è assolutamente scadente, poiché l'ho trovato "annacquato " sia nel colore che nel sapore. Invero il sapore era completamente differente dal Berberè che di solito in tutti quelli anni acquisto nei negozi Etiopi ed Eritrei. In più sono di origine Etiopica e mangio e preparo lo zgnì da quando son ragazza e mi sono accorta subito che non era quello del mercato Etiope od Eritreo. Ahimé col coronavirus ho dovuto optare nell'acquisto online :( La nota POSITIVA è che ho scritto i miei dubbi al venditore che mi ha mostrato l'etichetta che apporta l'effettivo imbarco da parte dell'Etiopian Airlines e mi ha assicurato che non veniva "annacquato" in fase di confezionamento per la vendita. Ho suggerito lui, l'ipotesi di cacciare fornitore poiché forse all'origine rendono il Berberè più mite proprio per un mercato occidentale, ma chi compra il Berberè sa che vuole assaporare lo stesso sapore di quello cucinato da anni in torre le case e ristoranti di questi paesi. Una stella per il prodotto. 5 per il venditore che con onestà si è esposto senza cercare scuse.

È il berberè che ho imparato a conoscere ed amare da piccola, quando mia nonna libica me lo portava dalle sue terre. Questo negozio è l'unico che lo abbia esattamente uguale. Meraviglioso.
