Join us at 1 p.m. EDT on Saturday, April 3 OR April 10 for Reading Coffee, Writing the Future: a virtual session for exploring the process and magic of reading fortunes from coffee grounds, hosted by former AANM artist-in-residence Levon Kafafian @visionsoftransition . Together, we’ll walk through the process of making coffee for readings and workshop the ancestral tradition of speculative storytelling. Using images found in the cup as generative writing prompts, we will explore potential visions of the future.
$8 for Museum Members, $10 for General Public. Act fast, only 15 spots available per session; link to RSVP in bio!
Presented in conjunction with a special edition of the Yalla Eat! Instagram Takeover Chef Series where @cairo_coffee ’s Monica Isaac joins us to demonstrate traditional coffee brewing. Follow along on Tuesday, March 30!
Getting ready for tomorrow at the Foxmill Park and Ride. I'll be there from 8 am to 1 pm. I did a large roast today and will have about 30 of the 38 countries I carry to make up for missing everyone over the Thanksgiving weekend which was my 1 year anniversary on the corner.

Arabic Coffee are primary traditions that strongly take action in everyday life for us.🏜🐪🐫⛺️
do you know the old meaning of the Arabic coffee cups (Fenjan) names?
El-Heif, El-daife, El_keif, El-seif.
✨ Fenjan El-Heif: That's the name of the first coffee cup, which was traditionally eaten by the host himself to prove to the guests that the coffee was not poisoned, and is today used to ensure that the coffee is defect-free.
✨Fenjan El-defe: It is the first cup that the guest drinks and represents the host's kindness, as well as one of the tasks of hospitality that the host is responsible for.
✨Fenjan El-Keif: It is the second cup that the guest drinks to savor the taste of coffee, and the guest is free to have it or not, and the host is not embarrassed in any way.
✨Fenjan El-Seif: The guest drinks it to show that he will stand by his host if he is in danger, and many guests refuse to drink it because of the obligations it imposes on the person who drinks it.
