King Salman shows Trump Saudi coffee drinking etiquette: video


When US President Donald Trump arrived in Saudi Arabia Saturday he was first treated to a traditional coffee at the airport in Riyadh.

King Salman enjoyed a cup of coffee with the American president and also taught him the traditional technique of asking a server to stop pouring.

The Saudi king was filmed shaking his cup, a typically Saudi way to indicate that you have finished enjoying your coffee and do not wish for a top up.

It is tradition that servers will continue to serve the coffee until the drinker declines by shaking their cup or by placing their free hand on top of their cup. In the video, Trump seems to enjoy his coffee and requests more.
Traditional Saudi coffee is stronger than its American counterpart and is typically drunk without milk or sugar and in small cups.

  1. North Korea for the unknown reasons canceled the second beer festival in the history of the country

  2. The Extraordinary Council of Elders of the village of Mrar decided: to boycott all who sell the land to Muslims belonging to members of the Druze community.

    The reason for the emergency meeting of the elders was the concern that recently hundreds of dunums of land belonging to the Druze families were sold to the Orabs from Umm el-Fahm, Sakhnin, Arrabe. This, according to the elders, can lead to a violation of the existing balance in the village, where always about 60% were Druze, 20% Christian Orabs and 20% Muslim Orabs.

    The Druze community believes that behind the purchase of land is the Islamic Movement
