“I used to be a chef, but coffee changed so much for me because there is no stopping, there is always something new in the job. Coffee is like a work of art for me. I have some customers who are college professors in Kirkuk. Believe it or not, they come all the way from Kirkuk 3 times a week, ‘Give us some coffee please!’ I think there aren’t many coffee shops in Kirkuk. I don’t want this to come off as praising myself, but my coffee supplier has a coffee shop himself, yet he still comes to me to drink coffee. Out of all the drinks, coffee is the only drink that has no harm, in that it always makes you active. That is why coffee customers stay in the shops less; they want to move and be active, but the tea shops are different. After drinking one tea, they are willing to stay until the evening and play backgammon and dominoes.”
