When you don’t know a place it’s easy to think that it has no culture. It’s easy to think that way if you have never travelled to a place or if it has transformed quickly over time. But the deep, roasted traditions in the Middle East puts coffee drinking front and center. A sign of Arabian hospitality is sitting you down with a special coffee pot called a dallah, where dark coffee is boiled, sometimes with cardamon pods and then poured into tiny finjan or finjal cups from which you sip the sweet black magic.

Saudi Arabia is wanting to show the world a taste of Saudi Arabia culture by showcasing five collectable coffee cups called finjals that include signs that reflect a certain region in Saudi Arabia. Ceramic vessels and pottery are having a moment as more people yearn for the local and the handmade. Hamada, a Japanese potter and Bernard Leech, a British one, explored this need more than a 100 years ago – as a means to get away from the mechanical and industrial soulless items we bring into our lives.

Karin Kloosterman, Green Prophet founder, has also done a lot of work in pottery and ceramics and recently developed AI prompts to create pottery glazes that could be made using materials on Mars. Eventually as people settle the Red Planet, they will seek out handmade, local items that will need to be made from scratch on Mars. Spaceships can only carry so much.

So sit back and enjoy a finjal that reflects Saudi history and culture.
