Geocache Description:

09 April 2020, 06:45 - 07:30


تطور استهلاك القهوة في مصر بفضل أخوة الصوفيين الصوفيين الذين استخدموها أثناء الصلوات. سرعان ما اكتسب المشروب دورًا اجتماعيًا وثقافيًا: بحلول نهاية القرن السابع عشر ، كانت القاهرة تمتلك بالفعل 643 بيتًا من القهوة ، وهي مقاهي أصبحت مراكز ثقافية وأماكن للتجمع.

حتى اليوم ، يعد شرب القهوة مناسبة اجتماعية مهمة للمصريين على جميع مستويات المجتمع. في كثير من الحالات ، يصبح المقهى نوعًا من الدائرة الأدبية أو النادي السياسي ، ولكن الأجواء الهادئة والمريحة تجعله أيضًا مكانًا مثاليًا لممارسة الأعمال التجارية ، وفي الواقع يمكن العثور على العديد من المقاهي في الأسواق ، حيث يلتقي التجار للتفاوض.

في مصر ، عند طلب القهوة ، عليك أيضًا تحديد كمية السكر التي تفضلها ، لأن الماء المسكر يستخدم في التحضير. يمكنك الاختيار من بين الحلوة اللطيفة (العريحة) ، أو الحلوة المتوسطة (المازبوت) ، أو الحلوة جدًا (زيادة) ؛ القهوة المرة (صدى) محجوزة للمناسبات الحزينة مثل مراسم الجنازة.


Coffee consumption in Egypt developed thanks to the brotherhood of Sufi Islamic mystics, who used it during prayers. The drink soon acquired a social and cultural role: by the end of the 17th century, Cairo already had 643 bayt qahwa, coffee houses which became cultural centers and gathering places. 

Even today, coffee drinking is an important social occasion for Egyptians, at all levels of society. In many cases, a coffee house becomes a kind of literary circle or political club, but the peaceful, comfortable ambience also makes it an ideal place in which to do business, and in fact many coffee houses can be found in markets, where traders meet to negotiate. 

In Egypt, when ordering coffee you also need to say how much sugar you prefer, because sugared water is used in the preparation. You can choose from mildly sweet (arriha), medium-sweet (mazboot), or very sweet (ziyada); bitter coffee (sada) is reserved for sad occasions such as funeral ceremonies.
