Coffee stories

April 5, 2013

I am so in love with Bosnian traditional coffee, served in tiny copper pots with long handles (dzezva) usually served in delicate tiny cups (fildzan). It makes me daydream about time machines, coffee simmering over a charcoal brazier, pasha smoking hookah in a courtyard full of roses… But I like how this cafe substituted an espresso cup for the traditional one. The shapes are beautiful together.

    Coffee is my favorite! This reminds me of another picture you had of the coffee pots from a previous post. The shapes (and little bubbles), are so pretty from overhead. Can I join you, pleaseeee… 🙂

    Many years ago I was in Turkey during a foreign exhange crisis -so they had no coffee (it was imported). so all the Turkish coffee shops had just tea. This post reminded me how disappointed I was – I had been looking forward to turkish coffee for a year. 🙂
