Few places on earth put greater importance on coffee in everyday life than the Balkans. It's not just a pleasurable or necessary interlude, it's at the very heart of Balkan culture. As both coffee/cafe lovers and inveterate travelers, we've decided to explore and document this phenomenon in blog and book beginning in the Spring 2017. And, in doing so, hopefully to also help kindle - or rekindle - an interest in this historically turbulent, wildly beautiful, warm-hearted region.
What is Balkan Caffeination?
Our mission is to explore why coffee and cafés are central to the Balkan way of life.
