ANKARA (AA) - Georgia’s ambassador to Türkiye declared his love for Turkish java Monday on the occasion of World Turkish Coffee Day.
"There are many coffee producing countries in the world, but making coffee in Türkiye is something else," George Janjgava told Anadolu Agency.
Describing Turkish coffee as one of a kind, Janjgava said it has an important place in his life.
“You know, there is a saying in Türkiye: ‘The memory of a cup of coffee lasts 40 years.’ Yes, this is true,” he added.
A Turkish employee at the embassy always makes his special Turkish coffee, and Janjgava said he enjoys two cups every day.
Janjgava said Turkish coffee is also consumed in Georgia, adding the history of the Turkish coffee drinking habit in his country goes a long way back.
Turkish coffee was added to UNESCO's list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity on Dec. 5, 2013. Since then, World Turkish Coffee Day has been celebrated every year.
