Remains hot for a long time thanks to its delicious foam, which keeps its form for several minutes after the coffee is poured.
Cools much more slowly than other varieties of coffee as it is served in thin cups, thus prolonging the drinking pleasure.
Has an unforgettable flavour thanks to its thick, syrupy consistency that stimulates the taste buds.
Is thicker, softer and more aromatic than other types of coffee.
Is easily discernible from other types of coffee due to its unique aroma and foam.
Is the only coffee that can be boiled.
Is the only coffee that can be used to predict the future. Cafedomancy: The use of coffee grounds to cast fortunes.

Does not have to be sweetened after it has been poured as the sugar is added during preparation.
