Haikakan S’rj,
Armenian Coffee, defines its lifestyle. Once thought to be a legacy of Ottoman Turkish rule, it is now understood to have originated in Yemen, with caravans bringing the beans north and then west, where it infiltrated both Asia and Europe. Like Greek or Turkish coffee, Armenian coffee is a demitasse of thick brew boiled and served with powdered grounds in individual copper or brass pots. When ordering, the server will ask if you want it soverakan or kats’r (normal or sweet). Normal is already sweetened a bit.
