Coffee Drinking Practices Around The World

Coffee is one of the most loved drinks on the planet for us humans and there are many different ways to drink it. The main way to drink it often depends on the country you live in.

Before coffee came to the UK, it was being consumed in many other countries, all in a different way and combining it with different rituals. Drinking coffee was a social activity with people getting together to chat about things and put the world to rights. This of course has not stopped but there are now even more ways to take it, including from coffee vending machines.

In the Asian country of Vietnam, coffee is strong, slightly smoky and caramelly, and sweet. It is served in individual cups with a thick layer of sweetened condensed milk at the bottom, and it is made using a strong dark Roast Coffee. A Stainless Steel filter with Coffee Grounds is put on top of the drinking vessel and boiling water passes slowly through to the milk, sometimes taking up to 10 minutes to do so. When it has finished, the coffee and milk are stirred together and poured over ice in a glass.

The Arabic way is to take it thick, fresh and black. It is brewed only when required in small, uncovered pots with long handles. Cold water (and the desired amount of sugar) is added to finely ground dark-Roasted Coffee, which is then heated to just below boiling point. A ‘Mazbout’ or medium coffee has equal coffee to sugar. Actually, the amount of sugar in the coffee should match the happiness of the occasion, therefore at funerals it is drunk unsweetened. It is served in small cups and when the grounds have sunk but it is still very hot, this is the right time to drink it. Traditionally, the host will personally hand around the cups, with the eldest or most important person in the room served first.

Italians are best known for espresso. It is a strong, short coffee with a crema on top – the foam. Espresso is made by forcing hot water through coffee grounds. It is usually drunk in the afternoon and Italians appreciate the rich flavours and light texture. In the mornings they tend to prefer cappuccinos or lattes (espresso with hot milk added).

Greeks traditionally drink coffee that is made in a briki (a small metal pot). Cold water is added to the briki, along with any sugar and the coffee grounds. When the mixture is warmed over a low to medium heat the coffee dissolves in the water. Foam rises to the top before it boils and a good foam is prized. The coffee is served hot and strong with the grounds in the bottom of the cup and the foam on the top. The foam is put in the cup first and the coffee gently poured into the cup afterwards. It is served with a glass of water. When the drink is finished, it is common for people to find out their their fortunes from the shape the grounds make when the cup has been upturned.

In the UK we drink coffee in all sorts of ways – from instant at home to espresso from a coffee shop or something from a coffee vending machine if on the go.

Coffee is an interesting and popular drink that brings people together in noisy workplaces, hangouts or at home where people can unwind, chat or get into a heated debate depending on the time of day.

It lubricates social lives all over the globe, no matter how it is prepared and drunk.

Ghanaian artist Fiifi Nyame draws inspiration from ceramic pots for this painting. Working with a freeform, abstract style, the artist paints this composition to suggest a group of three pots of different shapes and sizes. He takes a palette knife and layers a multicolored array of abstract designs over the composition. Says Fiifi, “Pots in the olden days were used to store water, honey, and oil.

The seven stories by Ja Youn Kim in A Song of Pots contain their own unique lessons or precious messages about life, and the messages are helpful to small children. All the stories are like the sun shining in the blue sky and the stars sparkling in the dark night. The plots are based mainly on nature and human relationships. The book’s title story,”A Song of Pots” is about a cracked pot. It teaches us about value and that anyone can have hope. The cracked pot comes to realize that an empty pot might well be filled with something soon and is not different from other filled ones, when the exhausted wind wants to rest there. “Will you allow me to nestle in you? Please?” “Of course! Don’t just sit therecome on in!” The cracked pot opened his heart wide to the exhausted wind. “I am comfortable,” the wind said at last. “I’m glad I could help. I am really not a useful pot.” “That’s not true. You are not different from the other pots. What is inside you only makes you look different from them.” “Really?” “An empty pot may well be filled with something soon. You need to have hope.” On hearing this, the cracked pot choked up, unable to speak.

Archaeologists have recently made tremendous advances in understanding the early ceramic traditions of the prehistoric Near East. Over the past decade there has been a huge increase in research focusing on various aspects of ceramic production, its origins and evolution, distribution and consumption in the Late Neolithic (ca. 70005000 cal. BC). Fieldwork brings new and exciting finds every year while laboratory studies change our perspectives regarding ceramic technology. Near Eastern ceramic specialists actively engage with, and contribute to, current trends in theoretical archaeology. The first time, the 19 papers presented here bring together specialists discussing Neolithic ceramics from the Near East in the broadest sense. There is a general focus on decorated pottery traditions. What raw materials and ceramic technologies did Late Neolithic peoples employ? How did they paint their designs? How may we analyze decorated ceramics to explore social networks and identities? What did these decorated pottery traditions mean socially? Essential reading to Near Eastern prehistorians, these collected papers provide new insights for anyone interested in the development of early pottery traditions and the social significance of ceramics in Neolithic societies.
