Coffee was first brought to the area from Africa by the Ottomans and was introduced to Europe by Venetian merchants who traded with the Ottomans.

Having said that, the Ottoman Empire had the Turks as the lead stars, but was a multicultural empire. Some of the food in Cyprus can be characterised as Ottoman food and Cyprus, having been part of the Ottoman Empire, can freely claim this food as part of our cuisine.

Just because certain dishes are Ottoman, that doesn't mean that they automatically "belong" to the Turks, but to any of the nations that constituted the empire. Ottoman cuisine belongs to everyone from North Africa to Serbia and if you think otherwise, well go get bent.

I actually had an argument about this with a Turkish Kebab shop owner in Germany years ago. At the end we laughed it off and he gave me a portion of baklava for free.

Personally I don't give a toss where and how Cypriot food developed over millennia.
I still refer to my coffee as Turkish coffee, and loukoumia as Turkish delights. Such frivoling descriptions bother me none.

Im just curious however to know the Turkish word for ...ameletita !! :lol:

Im arriving on Paradise island this coming Thursday and you know what, I cant fucking wait!!

CYPRUS, PARADISE ON EARTH !!

You hate Turks but I don't hate Greeks


Me neither. they're naturally null and void. predictable and unimportant.


What fascinates me are the Cypriots.
They're a mind fu** of biblical proportions.

The daft notion that everything came from either Greece or Turkey (whichever idiotic xenomania you aspire to) is a load of RUBBISH as Cyprus existed for millenniums before any of these two.

...might as well call Cypriots, and Jamaicans, Egyptians, because we eat Kologassi, and because of where it came from originally, which was the shores of the Nile.

...i define coffee this way:

let's say metrio,

"Greek"; modest spoons one to one
"Cypriot"; heaping spoons one to one
"Turkish"; two spoons each one to one

served in a demi-tasse, with or without a cool glass of water on the side.

...any questions?

The Ottoman savage nomads didn't hang around long enough, anywhere, to grow their own crops. So how on earth are fasoulia ottoman?

...and the crepe, is that not Cypriot? From Cyprus, eaten with honey and yogurt, by Pharaohs, and Kings.

You felt the need to give my post a false label and disregard it without really reading it. It just shows that you are a shallow idiot.

Meanwhile, I hope you continue entertaining the thought that the people of Alashiya "were enjoying different types of coffee". It adds a tinge of humour to your otherwise hate-filled monotone discourse.
