Coffee

.

The Turkish word is Kauhi, Kauveh or Kauvey.

Coffee. In Ardennes ten cups of coffee are taken after dinner, and each cup has its special name. (1) Café, (2) Gloria, (3) Pousse Café, (4) Goutte, (5) Regoutte, (6) Sur-goutte, (7) Rincette, (8) Re-rincette, (9) Sur-rincette, and (10) Coup de lʹétrier.

Gloria is coffee with a small glass of brandy in lieu of milk; all the following have more and more lʹeau de vie; and the last is the “stirrup-cup.”
