WEEKEND REFLECTIONS-- for Turkish coffee....

Individually, these little pots are called 'džezva' and are used for making Turkish coffee.  Many are on sale in Kalemegdan Park and around Belgrade.  In some restaurants, Turkish coffee is served on a little tray with a small cup and an individual džezva , accompanied by a Turkish Delight.

 Remember, the Turks occupied Yugoslavia/Serbia for 500 years.  Long enough to drink lots of coffee.

Turc, Italien, Américain, ou même Français, chacun à sa façon bien à lui de faire le café.

In Egypt there is exactly the same kind of pot to make coffee, they are decorated by the same technic, but with different patterns : less flower and more geometric... It amazing to see this kind of sharing of technics all around the world. Beautiful reflection indeed.

These are quite beautiful. That coffee is probably what kept the Turks revved up for the long haul. (Maybe they're not there anymore because they switched to decaf.)

How delightful to have one's coffee served in a work of art.
