Omanis Drinking Arabic Coffee

Coffee & Hospitality

February 25, 2018 0 Comments

In our last post we mentioned the community aspect of the Arab culture. Coffee has been a vital part of that culture for a long time, especially in the Arabian Peninsula. The picture above is from Oman and depicts a typical situation in a Gulf Arab home or campsite. Everyone sits around drinking coffee and talking. Almost always the coffee is served with dates and sometimes other fruits.

If you are a guest you can for sure expect this type of hospitality when you are in an Arab home.


This type of community can be missing in our culture these days. Most of the time when you walk into a cafe people are on their computers, tablets, or phones. We want to help fix this by only making WiFi available at certain times of the day. When the WiFi is off we will then ask anyone who still needs to work to please do so at our brew bar. Those times are TBD and we will post them in our shop and website. Another way to increase community in our cafe is our shop times. How many times have you been in a great conversation and the barista says, "Sorry but we're about to close". You look at your watch and it's 6pm! Not here. We will be open until at least 9 on weeknights and 11 on weekends. We want to be your late evening hang out spot!
