Let's go for a coffee!

Zagreb Ethnographic museum is holding an interesting exhibition these days. It's called Let's go for a coffee! And as you could guess, it tells a story about coffee, from the plant growing, processing to the serving and drinking rituals. Croats are considered for a big coffee drinkers. Lots of people drink coffee several times a day and consider it as an inevitable part of their lives. Our history is strongly connected with the Turks who brought coffee to us as early as the beginning of the 17. century. Also, strong connections with the Italy made us true experts for good coffee. 
Zagreb was always known for its splendid coffee taverns and today it has become an everyday ritual! It is a certain phenomenon of Zagreb, especially during warm and sunny days, people are sitting all over the Zagreb center, drinking coffee and enjoying the weather, good company and good coffee - in other words - enjoying life!
