Book Description

The book of the exhibition at Mili Reasürans Art Gallery’s curated by Suna Altan with photographs by Manuel Çıtak.

The book focuses on the coffee-drinking customs of three of the world’s greatest cities, Istanbul, Cairo and Vienna and also explores the global history of coffee, its traditions and literature.

Who discovered it, who brewed it for the first time and who popularized it in different parts of the world? Is it true that an Ethiopian goat herder, a Yemeni dervish and a Ukrainian nobleman were all responsible for bringing coffee into our lives?
