Coffee making a splash in Kurdistan's capital

By Mohammed Shwani 11/1/2019

Coffee has never been a popular drink in Kurdistan, but that doesn't mean it can't be increasingly found.

In a cafe covered with traditional rugs and furnishings, people in Erbil enjoy a cup of the freshly brewed drink.

Although tea is still the dominant drink in the chaixanas (tea houses), coffee is a growing trend like at this cafe on 40 Meter Road near Langa Bazaar. 

Nearby Turkey has long favored the drink, as well as the Iraqi city of Mosul.
