Where have the old coffee pots gone – Photo #8

In the Arab world there are a few unique objects that are traditional Arabic – coffee pot and incense pot are two that come to mind.  One that is typically seen as statues in major cities is the coffee pot.

In traditional settings, before meetings with Arabs and during celebrations Arabic coffee is served before the meeting or celebration begins.  It is a process and takes some time.  No sense in trying to hurry it along.

Passing through Souq Waqif in Doha one day we came across an antique (junk) dealer and here we found this collection of old and corroded coffee pots.  It symbolizes for me the hundreds of years of tradition in the Arab world that all the oil and gas money in the world won’t change.

I hope you enjoy the picture.
