Eléments pour une biographie des tasses à café dans l'Empire ottoman

Abstract : Although we are not short of well informed studies concerning coffee, very few authors have dealt with the coffee cup, except H. Desmet-Grégoire who devoted a whole chapter on the subject in her monography, Les objets du café, studied from an anthropologist point of view. Yet, however comprehensive, her approach relies on many written sources and on Art and Popular Tradition Museum collections, but does not take into account the actual reality offered by archaeology. As a matter of fact, the latter is different, even in contradiction with what the written texts tell us about the drinking coffee ways. This is the subject of this study. Starting with a comparison of written sources and actual archaeological data we propose a history of the coffee cup in Arab and Turco-Ottoman worlds.
