Brewed From The Heart!

Greek coffee is a strong brew, served with foam on top and the grounds in the bottom of the cup. Although it can be made in a different pot, the traditional small pot is best because it allows the proper amount of foam, which adds to the unique taste.

    UNESCO has also confirmed the Coffee Cultural Landscape of Colombia, but I wouldn't say that the Turks bought the raw material from Colombia for the preparation of their Cultural Heritage. The Arabs were the first, not only to cultivate coffee but also to begin its trade. By the fifteenth century, coffee was being grown in the Yemeni district of Arabia and by the sixteenth century it was known in Persia, Egypt, Syria and Turkey.

    Had the people of those areas known the spices that the Saudis add to al qahwa (cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, rosewater, saffron), their coffee would have been much tastier - as well as less heavy. It is never too late to learn.

    We are not talking about the coffee beans, how could we when al qahwa means wine in Arabic? We are talking about flavours that the plain brew coffee doesn't have, let the Bedouins know more about these even outside of cafés. Coffee was not only drunk in homes but also in the many public coffee houses - called qahveh khaneh - which began to appear in cities across the Near East. The Ethiopians were defeated by the Ottomans at least a century after coffee was discovered in the highlands.

    Omitting ingredients while using the same preparation method doesn't make either a new recipe or a new style, it just makes less tasty, heavier coffee simply out of lack of knowledge: "Had the people of those areas known the spices that the Saudis add to al qahwa (cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, rosewater, saffron), their coffee would have been much tastier - as well as less heavy."

    On the other hand, Cappuccino, Macchiato and Irish Coffee *use* different ingredients in addition (e.g. milk, Irish whiskey, cream) and *change* the brewing process. Al Qahwa without the spices is less tasty Arabic coffee, you may want to call this Turkish, but for me it remains heavier and less tasty Arabic coffee, just as the people have made it when they first observed their goats plainly eating the coffee plant.
